"Performance - Staging History, A Playwright's Approach" lecture by Katie Bender, McNay Museum, San Antonio, July 7, 2022

Join us for an innovative approach to translating history to the stage… but first, to the page! Playwright Katie Bender shares her process of researching and writing about Alamo survivors, ultimately creating her stage adaptation  Survivors/Los Sobrevivientes. The playwright introduces us to her compelling characters (both real and imagined), while actors from The Public Theatre of San Antonio bring them to life in performances of selected scenes. An audience Q&A rounds out the evening.
