Fall 2023

Two Ladies of Vermont 
Written by Leanna Keyes | Directed by Haley Wallace

Two Ladies of Vermont is a queer and trans riff on Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona. Four Millennials explore their faith, their relationships, and their duty to live their authentic lives. This play takes the basic skeleton of Shakepeare's play, takes out the terribly sexist ending, and inserts representation and ideas that matter now. Valentine and Proteus leave their too-small hometown in Vermont on a quest for love and prosperity in Boston. Silvia works to figure out her sexuality and escape her helicopter parent, the overbearing Duke. Julia/Sebastian is a non-binary person of faith becoming the truest version of themself.

Featuring Kiana Chitsazan, Austin Osuna, Molly Smith, Andre Avila-Villanueva, and Sage Rivera
