In continuing its mission of making Shakespeare accessible to all, ASC at NJCU presents Tales Told In Light, a series of free screenings of films based on or inspired from a play in the canon. At each screening an ASC Resident Artist shares a beloved film with our audiences in an informal, friendly setting. Q&A and discussion are encouraged. Light refreshments are be served. Donations accepted. Join our email list for ASC Alerts on future screenings.
During its inaugural season (2011-2012), Tales Told In Light (formerly Shakespeare on Screen) featured the star-studded Richard III and the riveting Throne of Blood at the comfortable lecture hall of Grossnickle Hall.
