Stories Better Never Told, or, The Library Project


From Emilie Pass ’15

Written, directed, and performed by
The Students of ENGL 000
with the dancers of Collective Motion

The Students of ENGL 000 invite you to join us for an evening of words, wisdom, mischief, and magic. Stories Better Never Told removes the characters of The Odyssey from the world of Homer’s epic and places them in the familiar but mysterious realm of the Olin Library Stacks. Watch, listen, read, and explore with the ensemble in this interdisciplinary, immersive theatrical experience.

Date: Saturday, November 2
Time: Midnight
Place: Olin Library
Cost: Free

Audition for The Library Project!


Looking for another “class” this semester? Want to spend some extra time in the Stacks? Ever wonder what happens in Olin after midnight?

Second Stage presents…


Otherwise known as The Library Project: An interdisciplinary retelling of The Odyssey, coming alive in the Stacks.

The Library Project will be an immersive, experimental, and completely ensemble based work of art that is different for each audience member. Loosely based on Homer’s epic poem, the play will be about knowledge, love, and the indelible power of words and libraries.

We are looking for not only actors, but DANCERS, MUSICIANS, SINGERS, WRITERS and READERS to be a part of our creative team. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
