SOU Theatre presents: What Happened While Hero Was Dead

A recent hit at Ashland New Plays Festival, Meghan Brown’s surprising play is a funny and thoughtful feminist riposte to Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, imagining the much mistreated Hero making better use of her off-stage time--afforded by the ruse of her death--than the original character managed.  This time around, dutiful compliance is not on the cards. Directed by Holly Derr.

Performance Dates are: February 16-18 at 8:00PM, February 23-25 at 8PM, Matinees February 25 & 26 at 2:00PM. SOU Black Box Theatre.

Masks Recommended. While optional, we highly recommend audience members wear masks in the SOU Black Box Theatre.
