Good-bye, McElroy?

Every year Loyola puts on a fabulous event, the McElroy Shakespeare Celebration. (You can find out about Bernard McElroy here.) The usual format involves a renowned scholar presenting on a play or plays, with professional and student actors performing some of the relevant scenes.

This year, Richard Strier, from the University of Chicago, will be presenting “Bangs and Whimpers: Scenes from Two Versions of King Lear.” The talk promises to be stellar; if you’re in the Chicago area, I encourage you to come. Maybe we’ll grab coffee afterward, or something. Here are the details:

  • Date: Tuesday, April 6
  • Time: 7:30 pm
  • Location: Mullady Theater, Loyola

If you want to see the McElroy in all its glory, this is your last chance—word is, the endowment that funds it has no more money!
