Qui Nguyen’s She Kills Monsters


View the Program ✦ Premiered

She Kills Monsters (Raya and the Last Dragon), written by Qui Nguyen, is the story of Agnes, a young woman dealing with the death of her sister, Tilly, by playing a Dungeons & Dragons adventure that Tilly wrote before her passing. It is a journey of self-discovery set in 1995 Ohio, and features a diverse cast of characters in both the real world, and their fantasy alter-egos, as envisioned by a nerdy 15-year-old girl.

Directed by Mike Fatum, Worlds Elsewhere Theatre Company is proud to announce our Fall 2021 Charity Stream, benefitting Trans Lifeline and Mermaids UK – two charities aimed at providing trans peer support and community care.

View the ProgramWatch on Youtube ✦ Premiered

Worlds Elsewhere Theatre Company has always made an effort to explore all the opportunities granted to us by the virtual theatre medium, and in that spirit, we invite you to the live, public performance of the first WETC Workshop production: a new short play, The Space Between, written by Company Member Meredith Cook and directed by co-founder Kyle Kallgren.\n\n

A century into the future, Kore, a college student, is on an intergalactic journey to find her brother. At space station after space station, she meets the same mysterious stranger, whose business plans lead them on a journey that seems to be intertwined with Kore’s. Through a series of vignettes, they uncover more about each other’s secrets, and what stays constant as the galaxy changes around them.

William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar


View the ProgramWatch on Youtube ✦ Premiered

Friends, Romans, Netizens, lend us your ears!

It is a time of turbulence in Rome as Caesar is celebrating his victory over rival Pompey. Many are thrilled but some remain more skeptical of Caesar’s consolidation of power. How are the interests of Rome best served?

Director Meryl Federman leads Worlds Elsewhere theatre company in William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Genderblind casting and “timeless” styling prompt us to take a fresh look at the responsibilities of those who hold power in a society.

Lysistrata


View the ProgramWatch on Youtube ✦ Premiered

Worlds Elsewhere Theatre Company Presents: Lysistrata by Aristophanes, Translated by George Theodoridis, Directed By Ilana Greenberg-Sud.

The Greek city-states are at war, but Lysistrata, a woman of Athens, thinks the war is wasteful and stupid, and wants it to end. But her wants are no mere idle musing! She has a plan to make the men in power listen, but she can’t do it alone.

In a socially distant, modern-dress presentation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy, translated to the vernacular by George Theodoridis and edited by Ilana Greenberg-Sud, we’ll learn just how much has and has not changed since the days of Ancient Greece.


A Midsummer Night’s Charity Stream


View the ProgramWatch on Youtube ✦ Premiered

On Jun 20th, 2020, In support of Black Lives Matter, #8toAbolish, and community bail funds across the country, the Worlds Elsewhere Theatre Company hosted a charity drive as its first production — a full live-streamed performance of William Shakespeare’s comic masterpiece A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Worlds Elsewhere supported donations to the Community Bail Fund, a 70+ collection of bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizations, curated by ActBlue.

Donors who made donations before the curtain fell on A Midsummer Night’s Charity Stream’s Act IV were thanked on stream, and the top three donors got a special surprise during Act V.
