For a master class in public bitterness, look no further than Theatre Three’s two-day production of The Lady Revealed.
Written by UNT professor Andrew Harris, Lady digs into the mysterious subject of many of William Shakespeare’s sonnets—a mistress who was “false-speaking” and “unkind.” Imagine that. In the ages since the Bard penned these olde tyme subtweets, researchers have attempted to uncover the identity of the woman he called his “female evil.” Harris’ play is based on one theory put forth in a book by British Shakespeare scholar A.L. Rowse.
The play is free to attend, but just call ahead for a seat (214-871-3300). If you can’t go tonight, tomorrow night is your only other opportunity. Grab dinner at CrushCraft Thai after the show—it is, thankfully, open later than your usual eatery. It’s also right next to Theatre Three in the Quadrangle.
Also this evening, CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta gives a free lecture on the topic of “medicine and the media” at the University of Texas at Arlington. GA seats are first come, first serve.
Finally, if you stop by Blackfriar around 7 p.m., local author David Marlett is hosting a launch party and signing for his new book Fortunate Son. The historical fiction is set in 18th century Ireland, so the Irish pub is a particularly appropriate place for celebration.
