The Great Drenching Picnic of 2013

Dr. Murphy: "Thanks to all who came to the picnic! Nearly 50 people! And you're welcome for the rain!

Thanks, Grillmaster Murphy; Thanks, Literati;  Thanks, Pigskins; Thanks to all who contributed food and drinks; And thanks, rain!

Coming attractions:
Improvised Shakespeare on Thursday, September 26th at 7:30 in the Ataloa.

Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) The Improvised Shakespeare creates a fully improvised play in Elizabethan style. Each of the players has brushed up on his “thee’s” “thou’s” to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. Any hour could be filled with power struggles, star-crossed lovers, sprites, kings, queens, princesses, sword-play, rhyming couplets, asides, insults, persons in disguise and all that we’ve come to expect from the pen of the Great Bard. The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. Nothing is planned-out, rehearsed, or written. Each play is completely improvised, so each play is entirely new!

Poetry reading on Tuesday, October 8th at 3:30 in the Chalmers Herman, featuring Megan Thompson, our newest faculty member. Following her reading, there will be an open mic.

The Picnic Approacheth

"Picnic" (1914-1915) by Maurice Prendergast
Hi all,

Literati is hosting the Welcome Back Picnic again. We’ll supply the meat, and we’d like people to bring side dishes.  We’re working with STD on helping with paper supplies and buns.

I’ll leave a sign up in 301 for people to sign up for food, so you’ll know what other people are bringing.

Bring games, too, if you can!

Robin Murphy
