Oregon Shakespeare Project Spins Into New Nonprofit – radio interview with Kamilah and Lue

Play On! began as a project of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, rewriting the works of Shakespeare into 39 works in modern English. The hope was that a wider audience would discover the brilliance of Shakepeare anew.

The success led to the creation of a new nonprofit, Play On Shakespeare, to continue the work. Kamilah Long, an OSF alumna, recently took the reins as Managing Director. She and Lue Douthit, CEO and Creative Director, visit with details of what the project is up to, and what plans are on the table.
