A Conversation with Mary Kathryn Nagle
As part of the Arena Stage/Georgetown University/Andrew R. Ammerman F’72 Partnership, and part of the GU Gender + Justice Initiative, this discussion features playwright and Georgetown alumna Mary Kathryn Nagle (COL ‘05), whose daring new play Sovereignty debuts at Arena Stage as the fourth production in the company’s Power Plays initiative. Sovereignty travels the intersections of personal and political truths, historic and present struggles, as a Cherokee lawyer fights to restore her Nation’s jurisdiction while confronting the ever-present ghosts of her grandfathers.This conversation with Nagle also includes Prof. Naomi Mezey, (GU Law Center), co-coordinator of the Gender + Justice Initiative, and will be moderated by Prof. Ricardo Ortiz (English).
