About the Performance
Ethan Cole’s struggle with school is not his academic talent; his biggest challenge is staying awake through uninspired lectures. To make matters worse he is frequently visited by the ethereal Bard, whose self-quoting interjections are complicating his social life. Directed by Tru Verret-Fleming and mixing relatable high school struggles with bouts of Shakespearean passion, Perdita is an anthem to friendship, loyalty, and being true to yourself.
