Description

The Kindness of Strangers

A senior thesis production by Emily Hunt '13, “The Kindness of Strangers” is a solo performance exploring the psychological journey of an actress struggling to find herself in the infamous character of Blanche Dubois (“A Streetcar Named Desire”). Konstantin Stanislavski's and Bertolt Brecht's philosophies and methodologies of theater, in particular, will be closely examined in relation to cognitive dissonance--how does one rationalize acting as a different person, a universal form of deception in the normal world, as "moral" on the stage? These performances are in partial fulfillment of Ms. Hunt's Honors Thesis in Theater.
