A series of virtual readings that go way beyond Shakespeare

Join us this season 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.

PEERLESS

Written by Jaihae Park

Directed by Ashley Mapley-Brittle

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.

This staged reading will be presented at Crazy Aunt Helen's upstairs bar.

Join us for food, drink, and an evening of theatre.

FEBRUARY 22
7:30pm

Peerless is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
