Posts! / Thursday: Artistic Gnomies


This week in Davenport Davenport’s very own freshman Tarek Ziad is cast in Angels in America; Millennium his third Yale show! It is considered one of the most influential plays of the 20th century. Tarek is freshman liaison of the Yale Drama Coalition and assistant growth and development officer for the Dramat. The show is about a character named Prior who gets AIDS and then his boyfriend Louis leaves him because he can’t deal with it. There’s also angels and ghosts and Tarek’s character is Prior’s best friend. Tarek supplies comedic relief at various points in what is otherwise a very heavy show. Lilla Brody ’18, a seasoned theater practitioner, described Tarek’s role and the show as “amazing! He killed it!” Catch Tarek on stage this weekend Friday and Saturday!
