In a world exploding with fake news, the facts often get
lost in the chaotic flurry of excitement fluttering all around the story. And
even when the facts are straight forward, they don’t tell the whole story. The

What is life without taking a few risks? How could you pass up this rare opportunity to see a theatre for young audiences’ dramatization of the classic story Robin Hood? Now appearing at Pumpkin Theatre to close out their mainstage 2016/2017 season, Robin Hood, adapted to the stage by Cathryn Pisarski and Directed by Bobby Harris, is galloping and gallivanting onto the stage to entice young audiences and audiences young at heart for an afternoon of daring swordfights,

Appearing as the second staged production in the Trans* Voices Workshop Series, Twelfth Night— Directed by Phil Vannoorbeeck and Assistant Directed by Sarah Maher— is shaking up the gender dynamics of the production to show one hugely important detail of existence as we know it: everyone wants to live their life authentically.

The gods will not be plagued if you do not call after them, but they may lay a pox upon you if you don’t call after Glass Mind Theatre and their current production of The Pretties.
