“Lord what fools these mortals be!” Audience members of all ages will escape to the enchanted forest in Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, where a feuding fairy king and queen cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. What could possibly go wrong? All performances will be set outdoors in this innovative production, bringing the Bard’s classic comedy to life. This Pay What You Can performance will include the distribution of free books to students as part of our initiative connecting theatre to reading and literacy.

"Precipice" was originally set on a diverse ensemble of 20 female-identifying and non-binary performers at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. It focuses on the experience of teenage women on the precipice of adulthood and features spoken-word artistry from female-identifying artists. The piece explores the relationship between spoken word and movement and was presented as part of the ATLAS Ensemble New Works Festival and UNCSA HS Graduation Cabaret.
