Upstart Crow reading series starts this June 15th!

WOMEN BEWARE WOMEN – June 15th, 7:30pm, The Bus Stop Theatre

Middleton’s notorious gender-based drama is a ruthless power trip that leaves very few standing and no one looking good. With a view filtered through the male gaze, we see a host of female villains and victims whose desperate struggle for survival leaves sisterhood in the dust.
Introduced and curated by Keelin Jack.
