Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival presents: Defy the Stars World Premiere - LIB 100/201 APPROVED!
Date and TimeSaturday, October 6, 2018
- Haas Center for Performing Arts » Linn Maxwell Keller Black Box Theatre
As a new event to celebrate 25 years of the Shakespeare Festival, we welcome back alumni from our seasons. Alumnus Scott Watson is finishing a new play, titled Defy the Stars, which will be performed as part of the 25th season. The play follows two actors being held at the Westerbork Transit Camp in the Netherlands in July 1942. In order to save themselves and others from deportation to Auschwitz, these actors stage a production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Watson graduated from Grand Valley in 2009 with a B.A. in theatre and currently works as an actor and playwright in New York City.
