Student’s study ends where it began

    After starting his graduate work with a study of Shakespeare’s ‘Pericles,’ Peter Reynolds decided to make it his thesis production.  
Peter Reynolds entered Temple’s master of fine arts program in the School of Communications and Theater three years ago with a basic assignment to study the text of Shakespeare’s adventure-driven play Pericles, Prince of Tyre.
   The project, under the guidance of then-Temple theater professor Jan Silverman, would, in many ways, take Reynolds three years to complete.

Peter Reynolds (back left) directs Pericles, Prince of Tyre, the first play in Temple Theaters’ spring season. The production stars Chancellor Dean (back right) as the titular wandering prince, and also includes (front row, from left) David Kaminsky, Connor McLaughlin Carew and Cosimo Mariano.

Psychologists surprised by findings on writing as therapy for trauma

This Week in Temple History
February 10, 1985

   The doors to two Park Mall rowhomes containing 10 new apartments were officially opened.
   The units, available for faculty and staff occupancy, were the residential cornerstone of what had been dubbed “Temple Town.” The plan, under then-President Peter J. Liacouras, sought to create a vibrant, 24-hour presence on the Main Campus and also called for a wide variety of businesses and services.
