Looking Ahead: MRS. HARRISON (Exclusive Sneak Peek)

With Ready Steady Yeti Go closing this weekend (there's still time!), I’m already thinking ahead to Azuka’s next show, Mrs. Harrison by R. Eric Thomas. I just recently read the script for the first time, and sat in on the first production meeting on Tuesday, and I am beyond excited for it. I can’t divulge too many behind-the-scenes secrets, but I thought I’d tease a couple questions and words from this week's meeting...

Also this probably looks SUPER funky on mobile.

This play is about two women and one story.
