Contributions to the event will benefit Prague Shakespeare Company’s Summer Shakespeare Intensive, a transformational classical theater training, performance and mentorship program that takes place each summer in the Czech Republic, where Jennifer King is a frequent guest director. “I have directed three plays for Prague Shakespeare Company (PSC), including The Comedy of Errors and A Midsummer Night’s Dream for PSC’s Summer Shakespeare Intensive (SSI). These experiences have been vital to my evolution as a theater maker”, said King. “Participating in this fundraiser for the SSI as a producer and director for a company that has given so much to artists from around the world just feels like the right thing to do.”
