On July 11, from 1:00 to 5:30 pm, Fordham hosts an afternoon seminar to coincide with DruidMurphy at the Lincoln Center Festival July 8 to 12. Irish and American experts on theater will discuss the enormous influence of Tom Murphy on Irish theater and of his works on the Irish and on the American cultural memories of immigration and of famine. The afternoon of lectures and panels will culminate in an onstage interview with two of the three founders of Druid Theatre more than 35 years ago in Galway, Gary Hynes and Marie Mullen. All parts of the program will include questions-and-answers and informal conversation with the participants. Seminar sponsored by Druid Theatre, Fordham University Institute of Irish Studies, The Galway University Foundation, and the National University of Ireland, Galway. Meeting place is Kehoe Studio Theater, Fordham Lincoln Center, 113 West 60th Street (9th Avenue), New York City. Free and open to the public.
