ReformED  

November 11-14, 2019

A New Play Based on the Real Stories of American Teachers
Written and Directed by Peter Duffy

Longstreet Theatre
7pm nightly


Based on hundreds of interviews and surveys with educators from across the US, Peter Duffy’s ReformED is an unflinching portrait of being a teacher in America. Sherry is an experienced teacher who is asked to mentor a first-year educator, Theresa. Over the course of their school year, the challenges of what it means to be a teacher in the age of educational reform come to light, and they are faced with the decision of whether or not to remain in the profession.

With text taken directly from the recorded comments of real-life educators, ReformED rings true like a homeroom bell, representing the experience of being a teacher in America with passion, dedication, wisdom, heart-break, humor, and love. ReformED is not just a play for teachers; rather, it is a story for anyone who cares about how we educate the next generation, and an appeal for all of us to reconsider the quality of education we provide to our children.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

May 19-30, 2020

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Robert Richmond

Performed at a brand new outdoor venue!

Bring the whole family to enjoy the ultimate summertime fantasy as The Bard intended -- under the stars! This May, we'll debut our new outdoor stage inspired by Shakespeare's own Globe Theatre. Made possible in part by a grant from the UofSC Excellence Initiative, this portable venue will bring the uniquely communal environment of the Globe into the 21st century and provide our audiences with memorable outdoor theatre experiences for years to come. A Midsummer Night's Dream weaves together the stories of four young lovers and a group of roaming actors, who wander through an enchanted forest and find themselves entangled by the mischievous whims of a band of powerful fairies. A timeless tale of magic, mix-ups, and mayhem, this Shakespeare classic reminds us all just "what fools these mortals be!"
