Free May 18 Film Screening and Q&A with Donald Margulies
On May 18, Illinois Theatre will host a free showing of The End of the Tour starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel. Screenwriter and Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies will be on hand afterward to answer questions about this film based on the memoir Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, which recounts reporter David Lipsky's five-day interview with author David Foster Wallace for Rolling Stone. Wallace was a resident of both Champaign and Urbana in his youth and wrote the landmark novel Infinite Jest. Margulies earned the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Dinner with Friends, and his other plays include The Country House, Sight Unseen, and Collected Stories. The screening will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Spurlock Museum Auditorium.
