Berkeley Public Library and Aurora Theatre Company invite you to an evening of theatre discussion on Tuesday, April 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room at Berkeley’s Central Library, 2090 Kittredge Street (at Shattuck). Michael Mansfield, Education Director at the Aurora, will be joined by renowned Schnitzler translator and expert Margret Schaefer. This new translation of Arthur Schnitzler’s Anatol was commissioned by the Aurora and makes its world premiere here in Berkeley. Attendees will learn more about the playwright, hear about the struggles and joys of translation, and gain insight into the particular charms of Anatol, in which the titular character practices the arts of seduction, adultery, infidelity, and betrayal, encountering a series of mistresses in his search for the perfect faithful lover. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library (www.berkeleylibraryfriends.org). For program questions, please call 510-981-6241. The Central Library is open Monday, noon to 8 p.m., Tuesday, 10 a.m.to 8 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and Sunday afternoons from 1 p.m. till 5 p.m. For questions and accessibility information, call 510-981-6195, TTY 510-548-1240, http://www.berkeleypubliclibrary.org.
