A DOLL’S HOUSE (Arden): Ibsen for our times

[Arden Theatre Company, 40 N. 2nd Street] January 11-March 4, 2018; ardentheatre.org

    A DOLL'S HOUSE (Arden): Ibsen for our times
    This #MeToo moment feels fitting for the Arden Theatre to stage A DOLL'S HOUSE for the first time. And this is a fitting staging. Using a nuanced 2013 adaptation by Simon Stephens, Arden's production regains the naturalistic dialog and interactions of Ibsen's text, while focusing on themes pertinent to current cultural conversations.

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings ...

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings of the National Archives are brimming with hand-written records like this document, the Deposition of John Snyder. This document is the sworn statement of John Snyder regarding the events surrounding the assault of Garrik Hulsecamp by Ezikiel Teel. It comes from a criminal case file which consists of assault and battery charges brought against Ezekiel Teel for his alleged assault of a man by the name of Garrett Hulsecamp on his ship in October of 1790. You can learn more about this case, and see the handwriting up close, by visiting our online catalog: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806. We know that last week’s Citizen Archivist Challenge is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue the important work of unlocking history by transcribing and tagging our records! If you haven’t already, get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (https://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist) to learn how to start and to find specific missions. Want to learn more about our holdings? You can check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing philadelphia.archives@nara.gov. Today's post was written by Grace Schultz, Archives Technician at the National Archives at Philadelphia.
