      EVENT DETAILS
      Paul Gross & Ethan McSweeny - ASC Discovery Space

      Join ASC Artistic Director Ethan McSweeny in conversation with actor Paul Gross, known best for his starring role in the beloved television comedy series Slings and Arrows.

      The pair will discuss Mr. Gross' life, art, career, and - of course - passion for Shakespeare and his contemporaries. We will also screen an episode of Slings and Arrows in the beautiful Blackfriars Playhouse setting.

      With both irreverence and deep compassion for its subject matter, Slings and Arrows tells the story of a Shakespeare company beset by challenges, the fictional “New Burbage Festival,” as it strives to strike a tenuous balance between art and commerce.

      The screening and discussion are FREE and open to the public but reservations are required.

      Paul Gross visits Staunton this weekend to join ASC at the Annual Gala where he, along with wife Martha Burns, will be awarded The Burbage Award for achievement in expanding the love of Shakespeare.

      Cost: Free - Free and open to the public. Reservation required.
