Field Guide at The Yale Repertory Theatre @ Yale Repertory Theatre
Feb 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Field Guide

With breakneck speed and endless invention, Field Guide skates through one of the greatest—and longest!—novels ever written: The Brothers Karamazov. Rude Mechs literally (well, not literally) rips pages out of Dostoevsky’s powerful meditation on faith, meaning, and morality and mischievously replaces them with stand-up comedy, pop music dance numbers, a cardboard bear, and a talking bird.

 Spring Semester 2018 | Behind-the-Scenes Collections Tours

(during the first and third Tuesday of each month)

 

From Anthropology to Zoology, the 13 million objects and specimens in the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History’s collections represent a world-class record of the history of Earth and its cultures. Yet less than a tenth of one percent is on display in the public galleries! In continuing celebration of their 150th anniversary, the Yale Peabody Museum will be offering free behind-the-scenes tours on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. In this tour led by Yale students, you’ll visit two different curatorial divisions, learn how the collections are stored and organized, and glimpse some hidden treasures that rarely see the light of day.

 

Tours are by registration ONLY & limited to 24 people.

 

Children must be 12 years of age or older to participate.

Spring 2018 Collections Tour Schedule:

  • January 23rd (fourth Tuesday in January for student availability)
  • February 6th   
  • February 20th  
  • March 6th 
  • April 3rd

MEN ON BOATS
Dramat 2018 Spring Mainstage

Written by Jaclyn Backhaus and featuring a cast of all female and gender non-conforming actors, Men on Boats tells the true(ish) adventure tale of ten dedicated explorers on an 1869 expedition to chart the Colorado River. Under the guidance of the one-armed Captain Powell, our explorers set their sights on new ground and fight for their lives, determined not to leave anyone behind. Comically self-aware, Men on Boats is an energetic and empowering romp that questions the way we present our shared history.
