A series of virtual readings that go way beyond Shakespeare
Join us as we dig into a series of classical plays and adaptations written by queer, indigenous, female, non-binary, Black, Latinx, or non-western playwrights. The readings will be in-person and open to the public. The reading of the play will be followed by a facilitated discussion of the work.

When Asian-American twins lose their spot at their dream college, their vaulting ambition leads to murder most foul. A darkly comedic take on Shakespeare's Macbeth about the very ambitious and cut-throat world of college admissions.
"A dark, whirling dervish of a comedy about competition, identity politics, shifting loyalties, manipulation, power dynamics and plain old teenage insecurities." - Chicago Tribune
Ring Yuqi Yang, Danielle Phan, Tendo Nsubuga, Jacob Thompson, Julia Souza & Rachel Dixon
This staged reading will be presented at Crazy Aunt Helen's upstairs bar.
