It’s 2020 and the anti-abortion movement has a new sense of urgency. Teens 4 Life is live on Instagram from the Students for Life of America Conference, and right-wing teenagers are vying for popularity while preparing for political battle. Our tour guide is fourteen-year-old Destinee Grace Ramsey, ascending to prominence as the new It-Girl of the Christian right while struggling to contain her crush on John Paul, a flirtatious Christian boy with blossoming YouTube stardom and a purity ring.

Who is Don Juan?

In the words of Molière, as translated by the incomparable Stephen Wadsworth, he is “the most vile miscreant that the world has ever produced: a dangerous man, a dog, a demon, and infidel, a heretic, who believes in nothing you revere or fear — not heaven, not saints, not God, not the Devil, Hell or werewolves; who delights in challenging your most cherished beliefs and lives to prove their folly in actions more lawless and licentious that anything you dare imagine; who is spending this lifetime as a hedonist pig, a pleasure-seeking, pain avoiding predator.”

All that and good looks? Swipe right.

Taffety Punk's company members act, dance, and make music. Sometimes we do all three at once.

The company meets in the morning with only their lines memorized. After a single rehearsal, the show goes on — ready or not.

The Taffety Punk Bootleggers return this summer to complete the trilogy begun in 2016. This amazing plays, too often conflated into a single performance, are seldom performed on their own. We will stage the entire play, battles and all, in a single day.

Bootleg Shakespeare is the most exciting theatre event of the year. And it is free.
