“MARAT/SADE takes place in the historical Asylum of Charenton outside Paris, where the Marquis de Sade spent the final thirteen years of his life.” Dealing with issues such as classism, abuse, and mental illness, this PW Production will make you think, and leave you in admiration for the students who produced it. Free tickets will be issued on Wednesday.

Sunday, October 18

Event: I Am What I Am: The Queer Review
Time: 7:00 p.m.

In its own words, “The Queer Revue is a celebration of non-conformity in terms of gender,sex, and sexuality.” Produced by Brown Musical Forum, this show will use familiar songs in inventive and reclaimed ways, question the ways in which we impose identities onto others, and highlight the stories of students and performers. If you don’t want to wait until Sunday, it will also occur on Friday and Saturday.
