All shows at Summit Rock in Central Park.

She Doth Persist presents the first show of our summer 2018 season, a world premier,
All One Forest by Joe Raik.

Join us as we explore a season of collaboration, empowerment, feminism, activism, and inclusivity.

Three young women from different places and times all cross paths in the forest. Before the day is out they will have to contend with the elements, with each other, and with a whole Faery Kingdom. One thing is certain: this is no ordinary forest.

This world premier play brings some of Shakespeare’s most popular people, places, and puns together in one comedic foray into “the Forest.”
