A lighthearted yet subversive virtual romp with the sly Shakespeare. Take 12 actors and 51 roles, stir them together, then let them find their way in Shakespeare’s festive world. Give them free reign to define each character’s gender identity. And what do you have? Unsex Me Here, Shakespeare, a gender defining defying entertainment.
Adapted and directed by D. Scott Glasser. Music by Paul Boesing

Queer & Women’s Inclusive Theatre Festival
Produced by UNO Theatre students, the QWIT Festival presents six original shorts that put queer and women’s experience centerstage. Quirky, campy, and compassionate, these plays are as distinctive as the members of the communities they represent. Celebrate diversity by discovering commonalities, exploring differences and contributing to a community conversation on the collective human spirit.
