A Noise Within launches “The INsiders” program (formerly known as “Scholar’s Society”) to explore the company’s six 2012-13 season masterwork productions and their relevance to the 21st century. These lively discussion forums and specialty workshops will be led by guest experts on the artistic process and will offer in-depth information on the historical, cultural, political and philosophical influences impacting the plays. Members also receive a copy of each play.

“The INsiders” begins on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 7 – 9 pm, with “The Dark Fantasy of Cymbeline,” a program focused on Shakespeare’s Cymbeline presented by Dr. Miranda Johnson-Haddad. The series continues with sessions that spotlight George Bernard Shaw’s The Doctor’s Dilemma, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath adapted by Frank Galati, Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice, and George Farquhar’s The Beaux’ Stratagem adapted by Thornton Wilder and Ken Ludwig. Dates for the interactive conversations are:

Haddad is a Scholar-in-Residence at The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC and has frequently led lectures and workshops at DC’s Shakepeare Theatre. She holds a BA in Comparative Literature from Princeton University and PhD in Renaissance Studies from Yale University.
