[Past Event] Sarah Bernhardt Staged Reading| MPC Lecture Forum 103

Course Description:

This one-woman staged reading features the one and only Sarah Bernhardt, speaking from the grave. In this dramatic reading, Sarah emerges from her tomb in Paris to remind us that during her life, she was the greatest actress in the world. Sarah recounts her daring, death-defying adventures, her world tours, her famous dramatic scenes, her many lovers and her apology that she was not a perfect person who led a perfect life. Sarah lived until she was 79 and wanted to die on the stage. Unfortunately, she died in bed of uremic poisoning. But her legend lives on.
