HAVENLibrary Author Talk

Dr. Lisa Stein Haven
3:30 p.m., Boyd Science Center 336

Dr. Haven is associate professor of English at Ohio University – Zanesville, where she specializes in 20th century British and American literature, creative writing non-fiction and silent film comedy, especially the work of Charlie and Sydney Chaplin and Buster Keaton. A Comedian Sees the World, written by Charlie Chaplin and edited by Dr. Haven, is Chaplin’s own written account that presents a candid depiction of his 16-month tour of Europe and Asia at the height of the Depression. In the book, Chaplin writes both comically and poignantly about the celebrities he met at each venue, including Winston Churchill and George Bernard Shaw in London, Aristide Briand and the vacationing H. G. Wells in France, Albert Einstein in Berlin and the soon-to-be-assassinated Prime Minister Inukai of Japan. Equally important are Chaplin’s interactions with more common people, including the down-and-out boys residing in what was Chaplin’s own workhouse school, Hanwell, located just outside London. For more information, call the library at 740-826-8152.

PROOFProof, a play by David Auburn
Directed by Visiting Instructor of Theatre Jimmy Bohr

Wednesday, October 21 through Friday, October 23 at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, October 25 at 2:00 p.m. No performance on Saturday, October 24.
Sandra Wolfe Thompson Theatre, Philip and Betsey Caldwell Hall

TICKETS:  $5 each, available at the door prior to the performance or by calling the theatre box office at 740-826-8376.  Muskingum University faculty, staff and students are admitted free with their university identification card. 

Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, this story revolves around Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius and her own struggle with the confluence of genius and mental illness that tortured her father. When Robert dies, his ex-graduate student, Hal, discovers a paradigm-shifting mathematical proof in Robert's office. The play’s title refers both to that proof and to the play's central questions: Can Catherine prove the proof's authorship, can she avoid her father’s descent into mental illness, and can she manage a relationship with Hal?
