The Weekender: March 30 to April 2
March 30-April 2
We’re quickly approaching the end of March, and for a number of students that means the end of midterms. Take some time to relax by viewing a Shakespeare play or a movie festival, or keep the knowledge flowing by attending a discussion about diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education.
This BU Shakespeare Society production, directed by Will Carroll and Katie Shepardson, reimagines one of the Bard’s earliest works in the context of a small-town council election.
Thursday, March 30, through Saturday, April 1, at the Student Theatre at Agganis Arena. Find more information, including tickets, here.
