Shakespeare Festival St. Louis Showcases Three Staged Readings as Part of its In the Works Programming at the Grandel Theatre

As part of its new In the Works programming, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis is producing three staged readings of “The Thousand Natural Shocks” at 7 p.m. on Tues., Nov. 6, and 10 a.m. on Wed., and Thurs., Nov. 7-8 at the Grandel Theatre.

“The Thousand Natural Shocks” tells the story of a high school student who explores his identity through experiences at a private military academy. The title character is encouraged and challenged by his role in the school’s production of “Hamlet.” Playwright Michael Sáenz was commissioned by the Festival to adapt the story from his book of the same title. The story draws inspiration from the It Gets Better Project, which leads a global movement to empower LGBTQ youth worldwide. Webster Conservatory alumnus Kern McFadden will direct.

Adult general admission tickets are $10. Student tickets to all performances are free with an ID but it is recommended they be reserved in advance. Tickets: www.sfstl.com/in-the-works, or call 314-534-1111
