|Cast in Do It For Umma at Theatre Off Jackson (Ian Johnston)|
You can still get out and enjoy many free outdoor Shakespeare and other plays in the parks, but here are the productions opening in August.

Think of the classic hero’s quest: a rousing call to adventure, legendary challenges and temptations, a road full of trials and perils, transformation, atonement, and an ultimate resolution.

This devised ensemble adventure asks, what does it take to be a modern heroine?
