Monarch is one woman’s retelling of the story of Queen Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots. Fleisher Art Memorial’s beautiful sanctuary sets the stage for past to become present. Fill in the blanks of history (with an irreverent dose of fiction) as a centuries old rivalry comes to a head. Queens will rage. Crowns will fall. Heads will roll. More info and tickets here.

You don’t know who I am.” Young writers share their perspectives on body shaming, gender identity, anxiety, online personas, loss, and ADHD and invite the audience to join them as they confront preconceived ideas, assumptions, and judgments.
