The Graduate Theological Union and the Center for the Arts, Religion, and Education are excited to announce a new partnership with the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. As part of this partnership, a group of GTU faculty members will host a panel discussion following an upcoming performance of Head of Passes, a new play by MacArthur Genius award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney that is based in part on the Book of Job. The play runs at the Berkeley Rep from April 10 through May 24; details on the date of the GTU panel will be announced soon.
In the meantime, the Berkeley Repertory Theatre is offering a discount to all GTU community members who wish to see a performance of Moliere’s Tartuffe on any date from March 13-19, 2015. This modern interpretation of Molière’s popular satire about religious hypocrisy is as intense and incisive as the day it was written--and just as entertaining. As a friend of Graduate Theological Union, you can save 20% (or 50% if you’re under 30) on all performances from March 13-19. Just use the code THEOLOGY online (or click here) and save!
The GTU will be coordinating a group of GTU students, faculty, staff, and alumni to attend a performance of Tartuffe. If you are interested in being a part of this group, contact Christopher Cox, Associate Director of Development, by phone at 510-649-2531 or email.
