Q&A Immediately Following Play

Please attend Dr. Susan Swan’s American Literature I students’ theatrical project:  “The Real World: Early American Literature.”  This play – written, produced, and acted by Del Mar students – explores a 5-week reality  show where Early American authors, explorers, historical figures, and fictional characters try to get along without killing each other (with varying success).  This play stars Andrew Jackson, Pocahontas, Columbus, Hester Prynne, a Native American Trickster, Emerson, Ichabod Crane, Bartleby the Scrivener, Frederick Douglas, Goody Galinda (a suspected witch!), Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Wollstonecraft, Montrésor, and Rip van Winkle (among others).  There will be dancing, singing, comedy, drama, fighting, and love connections, all overseen by Howard Zinn, who narrates the play from his heavenly pedestal and New Historical perspective.  Please join us for this unique, one-night-only theatrical experience.  Please contact Susan Swan with questions:  sswan@delmar.edu.
