March 9 – PARADISE LOST: PUBLIC READING

Luther College Chapel, University of Regina, 3737 Wascana Parkway
8:30am – 8:30pm
FREE EVENT

Please join us for an “epic” reading of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Former University of Regina President and current University of Manitoba President, Dr. David Barnard, will return to campus to reprise his role as Narrator – a part that requires him to perform over the entire course of the 12-hour event.

Professor Nick Ruddick of the Department of English will perform the role of “Satan,” .

The reading will begin at 8:30 a.m. sharp on Wednesday MARCH 9 and will conclude at 8:30 p.m.  Each of the 12 books will begin promptly on the half hour.  Spectators may come and go throughout the day and are encouraged to stay for the entire experience.

If you’ve always wanted to read Paradise Lost, now is your opportunity to experience its dramatic language, its energy, and its cultural power by hearing it performed and feeling the epic weight of its narrative.

Open Call for Auditions: Please contact: Jeanne Shami, Professor Emerita, Dept. of English, University of Regina, Jeanne[dot]Shami[at]uregina[dot]ca

This event is hosted by the Department of English at the University of Regina, with support from the Humanities Research Institute.
