The 2023 Winter Reading Series, presented by the Department of Theater and Dance, provides an opportunity to examine classical texts through the lenses of contemporary playwrights. From February 1-5, students from across the college will present readings of two plays- Pride and Prejudice by Wall Street Journal's Playwright of the Year Kate Hamill (adapted from the novel by Jane Austen) and Everybody by two-time Obie winner, MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer finalist Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (adapted from the late medieval morality play Everyman).

A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare, adapted by The Union College Department of Theater and Dance. On the eve of Duke Theseus' wedding to Hippolyta, Hermia is offered death or life as a nun when she refuses to wed her father's choice of suitor, Demetrius. Hermia and her true love Lysander flee to the woods, pursued by Demetrius and his scorned former lover; Hermia's best friend, Helena. The fairies in the woods are conflicted by the war between their rulers Oberon and Titania, and a group of passionate but unskilled actors seek to stage a romantic play in time for Theseus' wedding day. An abridged adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream encounters lovers young and old, human and fairy, and follows them through an evening of trials, tribulations, misunderstandings and magical interference.

Appropriate for all ages.
