TESTING!!!!! ——The Center for Ancient Drama at Randolph College is pleased to announce its rescheduled sixth conference on Ancient Drama in Performance.  We once again encourage all practitioners, scholars, and students of ancient drama to attend, now on the weekend of October 1, 2021.

We are hopeful that the distribution of vaccines will mean that it will be safe to join together in a theatre again come October, but we will of course proceed only in a manner that keeps everyone safe.

The updated Call for Papers is available in the link to the left.
