Olympia Dukakis, Greek-American stage and film actress, director, producer, teacher and activist, will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in Room 133 of the Humanities building. Dukakis will discuss the impact of her Greek-American heritage on her career, as well as past performances, particularly her lead role in the ancient tragedy "Hecuba." Following the lecture, Dukakis will take questions from the audience.

The event, which is sponsored by Classics Students Association (CSA), is free and open to the public. It is part of the CSA's annual lecture series, "Sex and the City," which is dedicated to increasing awareness of the ancient Mediterranean world through lectures, films and special events.

Dukakis, a stage performer for 30 years before she made her feature film debut, earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1987 for her role in "Moonstruck." She also appeared in "Steel Magnolias," "Mr. Holland's Opus," and "Picture Perfect."
