This show was a reimagining of Midsummer Night’s Dream through the lens of the four lovers. In the production, each lover takes a turn playing Puck–weaving deceit and betrayal amongst the ever troubled couples. We transformed a communal office space into a whimsical forest, where the audience could watch from anywhere in the space.

Sonnets by William Shakespeare. Adapted by Phil Weaver-Stoesz. Goshakes Theatre Company, 2013
My Roles: Adapter, Director, Producer
Sonnet Soundscape was a musical, multilingual performance bringing together 25 Shakespearean sonnets, actors of variable experience and indie-folk band Moral Circus. The sonnets were arranged into an emotional arc, transforming them into dialogues, rants and songs. The result was a dynamic, in-the-round performance at Better World Books and Ignition Music.
