It is always a rare delight to watch a play performed by its creator. Though at times such a personal work can unintentionally alienate an audience, at others, they can be evocative, drawing an audience into a vivid, heartfelt experience. From start to finish, “little sister: An Afro-Temporal Solo-Play,” was of the latter kind.
If you have heard anyone scream “Wakanda Forever,” or seen anyone cross their arms over their chest, you are probably dealing with someone who has “Black Panther” fever.

During a year of distress in both the political and entertainment worlds, the Oscars were a reminder of the power and hope of Hollywood. A telecast celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Academy Awards on March 4, 2018 harkened the power of nostalgia and showed montages featuring powerful clips from iconic films celebrating the essence of film. However, the show also took an optimistic tone, looking toward a brighter future.
The Brandeis Shakespeare Society, also known as Hold Thy Peace, put on an adaptation of playwright Ellen McLaughlin’s “Iphigenia and Other Daughters” this past weekend in the Shapiro Campus Center. The story revolves around a family of women in ancient Greece who are left behind by the men in their lives who have traditionally defined them, focusing on the lives that are swept to the sides of history to make way for the men. McLaughlin’s take on the aftermath of Iphigenia’s sacrifice to the gods delves deep into the thoughts of Iphigenia, her mother and two sisters.
