Remembering the Battle of Homestead 125 years on from Shakespeare to Honest John McLuckie. famed Shakespearean actor and playwright Mark Rylance and his co-author Peter Reder will share an evening exploring the stories we tell about each other.

 

In describing his forthcoming play about the Homestead Strike of 1892, Rylance said, “I came to Pittsburgh in 2003 looking for a story for a new play worthy of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. I discovered a story worthy of this Globe (planet Earth) we hope to continue living together on. It has obsessed me ever since.”

British-born and American-raised Mark Rylance is a Shakespearean actor of world renown. He was the artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe in London from 1995 to 2005. He first visited Pittsburgh in 1990, playing Hamlet for the Public Theater and later returning twice with the Globe Company to play Olivia in Twelfth Night and the Duke in Measure for Measure, Since leaving the Globe he has played Broadway on four occasions and has become more widely known for his roles on film and television in the BBC miniseries Wolf Hall and Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies and The BFG.
