So by now, everyone who follows this website or is on our mailing list has seen our new season announcement. This is the most busy Shunya has been in a few years, and it is thrilling. Besides two full length productions, we will also be hosting a writing workshop which will culminate in its own production. Also, I’m very happy to announce that we have received a grant from the Houston Arts Alliance to support our season.
We have a few things in the works, so stay tuned!
