About The Performance
Columbia University School of the Arts presents Meg, a directing thesis production by current student Catalina Beltrán.
Meg, the audacious early play by Tony-winner Paula Vogel, flips the script on Henry VIII and the Tudors. Daughter to the famous and beloved Sir Thomas More, Meg feels certain that she’ll follow in his steps as a brilliant scholar, with village idiot Will Roper as her trophy husband. But, as family secrets begin to come to light, Meg is forced to question the scholar’s life her father has set out for her. Will her father’s love or her husband’s devotion help her realize her dreams, or keep her from discovering herself? Vogel’s comic and cutting feminist vision questions how we construct histories, and who we leave out of them.
