ARL: Beatrice

October 28
Aux Reading League

Join ARL on Oct 28 as we read Elijah Guo's new play: Beatrice. Beatrice is just another badass girl who plays the flute. Except for the fact that she lives in 13th-century Italy and she's being followed by this really annoying guy Dante who keeps writing poems about her. Loosely based on Beatrice Portinari, Dante's muse and the figure at the center of Vita Nuova and The Divine Comedy, BEATRICE is a story of Heaven and Hell, love and loss, and a woman ahead of her time.
