This past summer I had the amazing experience of Directing a podcast taping of Mara Palma's play "Octavia & Kleopatra". Mara Palma is one of my favorite playwrights & first people I met here in boston. She is a fellow colleague, friend, theater lover, freedom fighter, Shakeapeare nerd, and revoluntionist.
"Octavia & Kleopatra" is a play that imagines what would happen if these two legendary women had clashed. The Boston Podcast Players talk about discuss mining the past for strong female characters, Shakespeare nerdism, her plans for taking over the world, and a certain actor's theory about what is and isn't enough representation.
For more information, check out Mara's website: www.maraepalma.com
You can also follow Mara on social media with the handle @marselissapalma and check out her New Play Exchange profile.
