Reasons to get excited for “Fraternity, A Fantastic Tale”

  1. We love a diverse cast – Nguyen has brought together amateur and professional actors, from ages 16-79, performing in four languages, in this collaboratively-developed production.
  2. We love a premiere – don’t miss your chance to see the North American premier of this new work from a new powerhouse of French theatre.
  3. We love theatre that centers community, and the opportunity to gather and appreciate live performance again – especially with artists who grapple with questions of loss, healing, and humanity.
