Christopher Benincasa recently sat down with director Michael Sexton to talk about his fresh, modern take on the play, and what it has to say to us in 2014 – more than four centuries after it was written.

Synthesis and characterization of the properties of Ti3SiC2/SiC and Ti3SiC2/TiC composites
In 1996, the ternary compound titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) was for the first timesynthesized as a single-phase, fully dense compound. Its characterization revealed aunique combination of properties. For its high fracture toughness, low hardness toelastic modulus ratio and excellent damage tolerance, it was dubbed a soft ceramic. Italso displayed good thermal shock and oxidation resistance. In this work, thereinforcement of this material with silicon carbide and titanium carbide particles w
