We have been very busy over here the past few months! We successfully produced our first short theatre festival for our in house theatre company, The Shoe Box Company. And we're now gearing up for our first installation in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival in September! We will be putting together a devised piece called "Wild." Our cast is set and diligently working towards crafting something really special.
