Eat. Sleep. Check Social Media. Repeat.

It's time to examine our individual responsibility in and culpability for the social issues that are currently fomenting in our country. In this brand new devised show, vignettes tackle issues that may be uncomfortable, but they tell stories that we all need to hear. It's not fake news, it's real life.

Trigger/Content Warning: This play uses discussions of anti-black violence and enactments of racial and intersectional microaggressions toward the end of white ally education. It may be triggering for people of color, and especially Black people. If you need support in processing this experience, we recommend using The Beauregard Center and Psychological and Counseling Services (PACS) as campus resources.

If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended, That you have but slumbered here, While these visions did appear.

The earth is burning like a lover’s desire, Titania and Oberon’s feud turns to fire. Lovers confused get caught in the fray, while bumbling laborers rehearse a play. Get caught up in the madness of a Midsummer Night, when the worlds of fairies and humans intertwine in a darkly comical way. A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by William Shakespeare.
