Taffety Punk and the Wolf Trap opera join forces in Wolf Trap's LUCRETIA PROJECT to present Lucrece's shockingly resonant story and raise awareness about violence against women.
Join us on June 11 as we
bring activists and community together to promote positive action.
The Taffety Punk bootleggers return to tackle another of Shakespeare’s lesser known works. This amazing play, too often conflated with parts 2 & 3, is seldom performed on its 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.
Explore theatre like a Punk! Tear into the Greek epic Antigone under the guidance of CHAW’s resident theatre company Taffety Punk to create a unique telling of this powerful story. Over three weeks, participants build skills in a variety of disciplines, including scene work, text analysis, music, movement, and combat training, culminating in an evening performance for the public. This fun and creative theatre-focused not-camp is intended for ages 13-17.
