Dream of a Common Language Symposium

A discussion of the play Dream of a Common Language by Heather McDonald and directed by Jennifer Hart. This intriguing work was inspired by an actual incident: women were banned from the artists' dinner to plan the first Impressionist painting exhibit in 1874, even though works by women were to be shown. In the play, the dinner is at the home of Victor, a successful artist, and Clovis, an artist who no longer paints. After helping with the preparations and being excluded from the dining room, Clovis devises a "women only" dinner to be held outdoors.
