Clarence Brown Lab Theatre: Cato by Joseph Addison

Category: Free event, History, heritage and Theatre

A collaboration between the Clarence Brown, the Institute of American Civics, the departments of English, Classics, History, and Theatre at UT, and the international research group the R/18 Collective.

Cato is the play Washington staged at Valley Forge after that 1777-78 winter. It is set in north Africa in 46 BCE, as Cato braces for the invasion of Caesar and imperial Rome. It's about how a republic slips into empire and becomes vulnerable to dictators. The play raises key questions for our time about the nature of citizenship and the challenges of keeping democratic institutions healthy.

Sep 16, 19, 20 & 21 at 7 PM and Sep 17 at 2:30 PM
Each performance will run for about 1:15, after which there will be a brief panel consideration of one of the key questions listed here, followed by a time for the audience to talk to each other about that question. We hope it will model the kinds of conversations we need to have to find our way forward in these times.

Tickets are free but need to be reserved in advance:
The conversation after is a chance to bring our community together around issues that matter to all of us.
