“Feast of Crispian: Shakespeare with Veterans”
Presenter: Nancy Smith-Watson, Project Director.
Nancy manages the Feast of Crispian (FoC), a theater based support organization for military veterans facing the challenges of reintegrating in their home communities after service that may have included trauma, traumatic brain injury, or other diverse injuries. Using the timeless words of Shakespeare, FoC offers veterans a way to explore emotions in a way that can help their successful reentry into a satisfying civilian life.
She will talk about the philosophy, techniques, science, and skills that make this work so powerful, and share the excitement of a new National Veteran’s Theater Festival coming in May.
Hosts: Bob Balderson & Lorraine Jacobs.

The Forum — in Max Otto Hall on our second floor — begins at 10:10 a.m. and lasts about 45 minutes. Speakers give a 30-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience.
