Shakespeare in the Streets: Bevo Mill

September 2022

Singing, Shakespeare slap-stick, and St Louis Celebration!

Apparently, our "distinctive, exuberant acting style was a joy to watch." - Bob Wilcox HEC Media

This world premiere play was based on Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors and is the culimination of a a year of story collection and communiy conversations in the historic Bevo Mill nieghborhood. The Festival worked with residents, community organizations, businesses and refugees that have found a home in the South City neighborhood to create a weekend celebration in partnership with Oasis International Ministries. The free performances will begin at 8 p.m. near the intersecion Morgan Ford and Gravois Rd.

The large stage which includes four replica Wind Mill blades was constructed on the Mordan Ford side of the park at this well known intersection which is home to the Bosnia and Herzegovina memorial Sebilj of St. Louis and across the street from Oasis International and Das Bevo. Audiences will sit on the street which will be blocked off between Walsh and Gravois. Winds of Change is written by St. Louis playwright and Drama Desk nominee Deanna Jent, directed by Adam Flores the Festival’s Manager of Community Engagment and Education."

It was GLORIOUS to be performing with these beautiful artists and local organizations!
