As artist-in-residence, Hare will meet with student playwrights and others to speak about his experience writing and directing for different mediums.
Hare will also participate in a town hall meeting on Nov. 15 at 8 PM in the New School for Drama Theater at 151 Bank Street, 3rd Floor. The session will be moderated by playwright and New School for Drama faculty member Jon Robin Baitz.
"Over nearly half a century, Sir David Hare has been the exemplar of the theater-artist as humanist; no other living playwright has so consistently and brilliantly explored the intersection between our public and private lives," said Baitz in a statement. "As The New School for Drama enters an exciting period of growth and development, David represents a gold standard for the work we hope to do-work that is rich, provocative, and reflective of a keen awareness of the relationship between the artist and the society in which he or she lives."
The New School for Drama's programs offer intensive training in all aspects of the craft of acting, playwriting, and directing. For more information visit www.newschool.edu.
