    A Conversation with Tina Packer and James Carroll.

    Founding artistic director of Shakespeare & Company, Tina Packer, joins the Modern Theatre at Suffolk University’s Conversation Series with a discussion on one of the iconic concepts in Western culture: the ideal of the warrior code of honor. Packer will discuss this theme as it relates to her upcoming production of Troilus & Cressida at the Modern (produced by Actors’ Shakespeare Project, April 25 to May 20). How does this paradox -- glorified by the ancient myth of the Trojan War and hilariously, savagely debunked in Shakespeare’s Troilus & Cressida -- resonate for us today? James Carroll will moderate the conversation.
