Our inaugural Problem Play Project production is a remarkable new vision of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale in a bilingual world premiere adaptation! The Bard’s spellbinding tale of jealousy, prophecy, magic, and redemption, reworked by Hillsboro-native Carlos-Zenen Trujillo, transports the action away from Sicilia and Bohemia to Miami and Havana.
Bringing Latin-American magical realism to play in one of Shakespeare’s most compelling (and magical) tales, The Island In Winter is the first show in a three-year project that asks emerging playwrights of color to re-imagine Shakespeare’s Problem Plays with a diversity and equity lens.

“The Problem Play Project gives fresh, new voices the chance to examine the most compelling questions of our time – our community, our common humanity, and our need to connect with each other in deep and profound ways…”
