The Kindness of Strangers: A Thesis Production

PosterPosterFrom Leah Rosen ’14:

Come see “The Kindness of Strangers”, a senior thesis performance by Emily Hunt ’13

The Kindness of Strangers is a solo performance exploring the psychological journey of an actress struggling to find herself in the infamous character of Blanche Dubois (A Streetcar Named Desire). Konstantin Stanislavski’s and Bertolt Brecht’s philosophies and methodologies of theater, in particular, will be closely examined in relation to cognitive dissonance–how does one rationalize acting as a different person, a universal form of deception in the normal world, as “moral” on the stage?

Seating is very limited, so get there early! Run time is approximately 40 minutes.

Dates and Times:

  • Thursday, February 28th, 8pm
  • Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd, 7pm and 9pm
