This year’s Aphra Behn Festival will consist of scenes from  The Rover, directed by Summer Baer, Taleesha Caturah, Miranda Jagels Félix, and Victoria Thomas.

The Aphra Behn Festival is named for the British playwright, poet, translator, and fiction writer from the Restoration era. As one of the first English women to earn her living by writing, Aphra Behn broke cultural barriers and served as a literary role model for later generations of women. Founded in 2017, The Aphra Behn Festival was inspired by SATE’s 2015 production of Or, a play by Liz Duffy Adams featuring Aphra Behn as a character.
