Those words are part of a mission statement on a bronze plaque I pass daily on the wall of the dorm where I am staying for a month in Chicago. Elements Theatre Company is studying for the next several weeks, expanding our repertoire to include the works of Henrik Ibsen and staying at Loyola University. What a gift! We who daily embrace all things Benedictine are enjoying the hospitality of this Jesuit institution as we seek to expand our understanding of Ibsen’s canon and learn new skills – skills that on this educational retreat (following previous trips to London and NYC) include stage combat – wow! Can’t wait for the swords and shields! I’ll keep you posted as the month progresses.
