Oslo Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Fresh from Broadway and the West End, the regional premiere of this stunning new play will captivate audiences. Inspired by the true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and the Palestinians, Oslo is a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas, a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. Oslo is “thrilling, a colossus,” raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times. At this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, “Oslo gives us hope” (Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News).

Roger Guenveur Smith - "Frederick Douglass Now"

Roger Guenveur Smith - "Frederick Douglass Now"
Description:

This tour-de-force solo show explores the life of the great 19th-century African American orator, writer, thinker and activist—whose ideas on racial and gender equality still resonate. An actor, writer and Spike Lee film veteran (School Daze, Do the Right Thing), Smith brings Douglass’s ideas into the present moment, mingling the abolitionist’s words with original text, slam poetry, music and contemporary performance elements. As the country marks the 200th anniversary of Douglass’s birth, Smith deftly exposes where we stand on the matters of freedom and dignity Douglass articulated. Smith last performed at Dartmouth in 1997 with his Obie Award-winning solo show on Huey P. Newton.
