Philosophy and Issues Discusses: Boethius, Consolation of Philosophy

This is a story about a condemned prisoner in sixth-century Rome, who gains a new understanding of the meaning of his life while undergoing incarceration. He does so through an encounter with a surprising figure, Lady Philosophy. Here, Lady Philosophy is a fully imagined woman who advises and guides Boethius through his grief over his loss of status and then leads him to a renewed sense of himself as a free soul inhabiting a human body.

Polk Street by T. Chase Meacham

Polk Street is a new play by the Georgetown University alumnus, T. Chase Meacham.  It is based on Polk Street Stories by Joey Plaster. The play presents many diverse characters as they struggle, suffer, and hope while facing change in themselves and in their neighborhood due to gentrification.  What was once a queer, working class neighborhood in San Francisco's Tenderloin District, Polk Street is turning into an upscale one, and the audience lives the change along with the characters.
