EXPAND THE CANON WITH HEDGEPIG ENSEMBLE THEATRE
Hedgepig Ensemble Theatre is a NYC-based theatre company that has undertaken efforts to expand the theatrical canon to include works by women and other underrepresented genders. This year, I will be joining the Ensemble as a reading committee member in order to help shift the landscape of classical theatre to include a wider array of voices. In their own words:
"So long as the only stories revered as classics are by men, we will continue to prioritize the male lens and point of view culturally...By insisting that excellent plays by a diverse group of women be regarded as classics, we can redefine theatre’s values. And by staging these stories in our communities, we can shift culture. "
