Friends of the Library and Gallery will sponsor an enhanced experience of “Las Meninas” by Lynn Nottage, presented by the Department of Theatre and directed by Eve Muson, Saturday, November 20.
Set in the glittering court of Louis XIV, “Las Meninas” tells the true story of the seduction of Queen Marie-Thérèse and the consequences of her scandalous affair with Nabo Sensugali, her African servant. Irreverent and ironic, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage shines a fiercely imaginative beam on a fascinating but forgotten bit of history that reveals contemporary truths about the racial divide.
The event will begin at 5 p.m. on the seventh floor of the library with a wine and soft drink reception. Dinner will begin at 6 p.m., with remarks by director Eve Muson after dinner at 7 p.m., and the play will begin at 8 p.m. in the theatre.
Tickets are $35 per person and include reception, dinner and admission to the play. Make reservations for individuals, couples or full tables up to eight people with this form: http://aok.lib.umbc.edu/admin/friends/events/meninasflyer.htm.
