The Philadelphia Artists Collective will present a staged reading of The Moor’s Son, a new play from Foundry member Ian August, as part of their Venture Reading Series.
Ian’s play marks the first collaboration with a living playwright for the PAC, whose mission is to produce rare, classical plays. Ian created The Moor’s Son as a kind of sequel to Titus Andronicus, picking up the plot of Shakespeare’s play twenty years later. The PAC describes The Moor’s Son as an exploration of “one man’s journey for redemption and the lingering spirits of the past.” Ian speaks in depth about the works that inspired the play, his writing process, and the upcoming reading in a conversation with the PAC here.
The PAC presents The Moor’s Son at 7pm on February 9th at Benjamin Franklin Hall, 427 Chestnut Street. Tickets are free and available here.
