Last year we announced a partnership with Off-Broadway’s NAATCO (National Asian American Theatre Company) and their Artistic Director Mia Katigbak (Two River’s I Remember Mama).Two River is also working on an ambitious project to produce a festival built around Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. As part of that project, we plan to produce, in partnership with NAATCO, this modern verse translation of the Shakespeare classic by South Korean playwright, Hansol Jung (Wild Goose Dreams, Cardboard Piano). The translation was originally commissioned by Oregon Shakespeare Festival as part of “Play on! 36 playwrights translate Shakespeare.”
Benefiting Partner Organization: To be announced.
