To prepare for our April collaboration on the Nelken-Line project, this coming Monday during class, THEA 402 will present a staged reading of a new play written by me. The play will be a response to playwright Paula Vogel’s National Ubu Roi Bakeoff Challenge, a nationwide performance of new 5-page plays inspired by French playwright, Alfred Jarry’s 1896 (eerily contemporary) comedy about a ruler gone mad, spreading international mayhem.

Dramaturgy by Molly O’Keefe; Stage Manager, Nina Grauer; Photography; Kira Robbins. Performed by Sophie Brown, Clara Hanahan, Cole Harris, Samantha Leigh, Ellie Milewski, Margaret Phipps, Cameron Pillitteri, Laney Pleasanton, Natasha Schlaffer, Chelsea West, Kaitlyn Whitesell, Zackery Wold, and Wen Zhou.
