Event description: 

Written By Young Jean Lee
Directed by Shadi Ghaheri

Five twenty-somethings search for answers to life’s most troubling questions while their unseen fathers go mad in a storm that rages just offstage. Young Jean Lee turns the spotlight away from Shakespeare’s most famous patriarch to focus on the existential musings of the kingdom’s adult children. Regan, Goneril, Cordelia, Edgar, and Edmund distract themselves from their unjustly suffering fathers by passing the time with drugs, alcohol, sex, and small talk - driving themselves sublimely, deliriously mad in the process.
