"The Tragedy of Thomas Hobbes" is performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company

The innovative play, which opened in London, was catalyzed by Janet Sonenberg, Head of Music and Theater Arts, and Diana Henderson, Professor of Literature.  The play examines "the time of silence"—the years between 1642 and 1660 in England when Puritan rulers shuttered theaters—which was also a period of intense interest in experimental science.  Poster image © Ellie Kurtz, Royal Shakespeare Company  •
