The JASNA MD summer program celebrated the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mansfield Park and the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore. Since two of Jane Austen’s brothers served in the Royal Navy, and Fanny’s brother is an officer in the Navy in the book, we took a look at Navy on both sides of the ocean.
I love the play on the phrase “Free Shakespeare.” Is it free because it doesn’t cost any money to see the show (which is the worthy goal of this campaign — to bring the Bard’s works to all by 2016), or does it mean Free Shakespeare because he’s landed in jail for drunken, disorderly conduct (again!) You decide… and make a donation while you’re at it, OK?
