Mark your calendars! Recent graduates and Winchester Prize recipients Kt Ayer and Ellen Moore are presenting works on August 3-6 in this year’s SummerWorks Performance Festival. This double-bill presentation is part of an ongoing partnership with SummerWorks that is generously supported by Lindy Green and Sam Chaiton as the Winchester Prize.
