      Join us for a virtual reading of Rosie Narasaki’s (Un)rivaled on October 5th, 2020 at 6 PM.

      11th Century ladies-in-waiting Murasaki Shikibu and Sei Shonagon are, to this day, two of Japan’s most beloved writers.

      They also kinda hated each other.

      This play is about friendship, heartbreak, and what it means to be a female artist. Perhaps most of all, it’s about how no matter how much things change, the more they stay the same…

      Even after a thousand years.
