My Home is Far Away

The Young People's Company Annual Story Theatre festival

Young People's Company is Piven's most advanced, prestigious performance ensemble. Each year, YPC adapts and performs stories in a week-long Story Theatre Festival. This year, these adaptations meditate on the concept of "Home". The world-premiere adaptations will tell the story of being in our small corner of America in 2018 and wondering if we are home.


World Premier Adaptations of:

"Crescent Moon Bear" directed by Jennifer Green

"The Fisherman and His Wife" directed by Liz Bell

"Persephone" directed by Morven Higgins

"Tam Lin" directed by Mikalina Rabinsky
