Reception Invitation

In connection with the events for the special performance of the mysterious slapstick Hamlet this Monday the 23rd (see below), you’re invited to an English department reception outside the Cinema where you can (of course) enjoy refreshments as well as socialize with English faculty and other English majors and graduate students.  It will take place at about 7 pm, between the 6:30 talk by Prof. Zachary Lesser and the 7:30 performance of the play.  We hope to see you there!
