Haas Family Arts Library, 180 York Street
August 27 – December 18
Great theater is both timely and timeless, speaking about the present while making sense of the past and remaining relevant into the future. This exhibition traces how events in world history have shaped the history of the Yale School of Drama from its beginnings in 1925 to the present day. From air raids to AIDS benefits, political provocations to world premieres by major international playwrights, the School’s history and its intersections are reflected in Arts Library Special Collections holdings of scripts, programs, posters, and other archival materials.
