The Marvelous Puppet Show – An Illuminated Lecture

April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Learn about this short play by Cervantes through a lecture infused with both scholarship and performance.

In the program, Professor Barbara Fuchs addresses Miguel de Cervantes’ surprisingly timely take on the trustworthiness of media. How does who we are shape what we see and believe? And how do the purveyors of media manipulate those distinctions?

In The Marvelous Puppet Show, the author of Don Quixote gives us a story of charlatans who con an audience of nervous villagers. For better or for worse, the short play invites us to become that audience. As it dissects the foibles of belief and belonging, Cervantes’ uncannily prescient interlude poses uncomfortable questions for the here and now. This lecture interweaves scholarship presented by Dr. Fuchs with performances by actors from theatre dybbuk.

The lecture will take place in Shatto Chapel at First Congregational Church of Los Angeles and will be followed by a Q & A.

Doors open at 6:30 pm.

This event is presented in partnership with Diversifying the Classics at UCLA and First Congregational Church of Los Angeles.
