AUGUST 18 UULALA Monthly Theme: PRAYER AND MEDITATION
OFFBEAT THEATER AT
THE OREGON SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
Please join us this Sunday morning, August 18, as Fellowship Historian Bill Edwards shares his recent experience at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.Bill attends the Festival each year and reports back to the Fellowship. Three plays stood out for Bill this year:
"Indecent" - about Yiddish theater author Sholem Asch, and a shocking play he wrote in 1906, dealing with piety, hypocrisy, and lesbianism(!).
"Cambodian Rock Band" - rock musicians in Cambodia when it was falling to the Khmer Rouge, and their survivors after its overthrow.
"La Comedia of Errors" - Shakespeare's absurd comedy reset on the Texas-Mexico border, with twins separated at birth, growing up on opposite sides of the Rio Grande, the dialog in Spanish and English, sometimes translated, sometimes not.
Prayer and meditation take many forms and, as Unitarian Universalists, we embrace art as one way we communicate our highest desires, deepest aspirations and profound gratitude for Life.
A past President, long time member and current Historian of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Lafayette, Bill is retired from the Computer Science Department at the University of Louisiana. His hobbies are wood working, photography, and films.
