6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Whose Choice Is Death?
A Ford Hall Forum event.

Featuring Guy Maytal, M.D. (Associate Director of Ambulatory Psychiatry, MGH) and Marcia Angell, M.D. (Senior Lecturer in Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School). Moderated by Ford Hall Forum Vice President Jack Wrobel.

With the vote on the physician-assisted suicide initiative coming down to a slim margin this past November, voters of Massachusetts appear torn. Is this dignity or playing God? Mercy or giving up too soon? Does it give people who are suffering a way to control their own destinies, or people with hidden agendas a way to do away with the vulnerable? And how soon will this issue arise again in our state? Jack Wrobel, Ford Hall Forum Vice President, moderates a debate that elucidates the issue from each side. Marcia Angell, M.D. and Guy Maytal, M.D. discuss facts, feelings, and unintended effects while the audience decides for themselves whether physician-assisted suicide should ever be Massachusetts law.

Presented by the Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University. Free and open to the public. Reserve your space here. For more information, please visit www.fordhallforum.org.
7:30 PM Pericles
Actors' Shakespeare Project presents

Pericles
by William Shakespeare
directed by Allyn Burrows 
 
How much can one man take? Shakespeare presents us with the swirling tribulations of Pericles, whose journey involves a series of surprises and challenges that would test even the most resilient of men as he is flung from cruelly personal adversity to the ravages of storms. Can you blame him for wondering why? Fortunately for him, and for us, time and good fortune bring relief to these trials in the form of sweet amazement and reunion. Pericles explores the fullness of this man’s life, and brings us a deeper appreciation for the grace of humanity.

Featuring:
Paula Plum*
Bobbie Steinbach*
Siobhan Brown
Johnny Lee Davenport*
Nigel Gore*
Jesse Hinson*
Kathryn Lynch
Johnnie McQuarley
Elizabeth Rimar
Omar Robinson

8:00 PM The Crucible
The Suffolk University Theatre Department presents

The Crucible
by Arthur Miller
directed by Judy Braha

America's most provocative play turns 60 in 2013. Miller's allegorical response to the McCarthy Era trials transports us to the Salem witch-hunt madness. The embers of a girl's malicious game ignite the Puritanical world of Salem Village with false prophecies, greed and vengeance. Braha directs the Suffolk University Theatre Department production of Miller's classic.
