CSC in partnership with Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) presents 39 readings from the Play on! Shakespeare translation project. OSF commissioned 36 playwrights—more than half are women and more than half are playwrights of color, each paired with a dramaturg—to translate Shakespeare’s canon into contemporary modern English to celebrate the enduring impact of the Bard’s work. These commissions challenge the playwrights to bring the same level of dramatic pressure and rigor of language to their work as is present in the originals, deepening our understanding and engagement with Shakespeare. This project is sponsored by a generous grant from the Hitz Foundation.
