People Sitting in Darkness
by Clarence Coo
directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh

In this comic adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream set in the early 20th-century Philippines, a small town prepares to stage a performance for their American occupiers. Their play, based on an American novel about a young boy and an escaped slave rafting down the Mississippi, will either earn the townspeople their freedom --or more trouble from the US military.
