A Republican, Senator Smith bravely denounced McCarthyism at a time when others feared speaking out would ruin their careers ( This short play will be followed by a panel discussion with State Senator Jeannie Darneille, Tacoma City Councilmember Lauren Walker Lee, Playwright Linda Britt, and University of Puget Sound Associate Professor of Politics and Government Robin Jacobson.

Lakewood Playhouse, 5729 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd., Lakewood, WA 98499
Acclaimed as a modern comedic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. Presented with THE 15 MINUTE HAMLET. Info:
