Fresh Ink Series: Miranda

Thursday, Jul 24th to Sunday, Jul 27th

By James Still
Directed by Michael Robins

This Illusion Theater commission is the third play in a trilogy of plays by James Still exploring the aftermath of 9-11 and the ripple effects on one family. In MIRANDA it is the existential crisis of a CIA operative who goes by many names. Who is she? What's kept her working in the Middle East all these years? Why can't she leave? And how does she find herself directing a production of "Othello" in Yemen and how does Shakepeare turn her world inside-out??? Miranda isn't typical CIA. Or maybe she is…

Thursday, Oct 2nd to Saturday, Oct 25th

The year is 1969. Aspirations are running high in the town of Steubenville, Ohio, as 11 year old Jeffrey takes the director's chair for the first time in his young life. Through hilarity and mishap, he leads his fellow fifth grade classmates through rehearsals of an adaptation of Shakespeare's greatest drama.


"This is the funniest piece about theater since Noises Off!"

- Audience Member

"OH MY GOD!!! Jeff Hatcher's Hamlet is TO DIE FOR!!

My jaw is still sore from laughing! "

-Jim Smart, after opening night.
