The LIT Players take on Classic Tales with Women at the Center of the Stories

LIT is Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s irreverent celebration of classic tales — over drinks. It’s a party, where a play breaks out. Come early for rocking preshow music, tons of audience engagement, and plays like you’ve never seen them before.

In LITtle Women & Other Stories… As a young writer tries to finish her novel by the deadline, which happens to be tonight, she looks to the audience for guidance in this choose your own adventure rom-com. As the novel unfolds with twists and turns at every corner the audience will help them fall in love…or maybe not.

Written by Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s own Traycie Kuhn-Zapata.
