MSP has embarked on a very personal project for our 2016 FREE Shakespeare in the ParkS production.

On December 7, 2015 Donald Trump called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States”. This was just the beginning of what has created the current political climate of fear of “The Other” in the United States.

Al’ukhraa: A Study in Othello will integrate personal stories from NYC high school girls with Shakespeare’s Othello.

We want to create a space for these girls’ voices to be heard.

We want to bring to the forefront what is happening in our own backyard.

We want to stir our communities to action.

This is the blog of the girls, the actors, the women, the production team as they create, rehearse, and perform  Al’ukhraa.

This is a conversation our entire community needs to be having. Please send us your thoughts, your own stories, and join us as we share ours.

And come see the SHOW!
