    He was born in 1564, but historians lose track of Will Shakespeare until around 1590. This play gleefully jumps in to fill in the gaps of his so-called "lost years." Will is a 21-year-old dreamer, the father of three and quite jobless. His wife is distracted by the amorous attentions of their neighbor. Poverty, lust and gender confusion rock everyone's boat, but, in the end, fortune smiles on the aspiring young poet. Learn More

    In Caught Between Two Worlds, 15-year-old Andrea is half Latinx and half white. Not speaking Spanish, she is shunned by those who are Latinx, and since her skin is brown, she’s shunned by those who are white. The play focuses on the need of those who are of mixed race to discover where they belong, not only in our society but in their own home, and brings insight to the young people who may have dealt with them cruelly.
