Day of Silence
Day of Silence is a national youth movement protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. The deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. Ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices.  Think about the voices you are not hearing today.

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.

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.

Tickets: $15 ($10 for Students, Seniors, and with Suffolk ID)
