THIN MINTS returns with a free public reading on Sunday, May 5 @ 11am following a sold out performance at Steep Theatre in January!

If we’ve all become monsters, what are we gonna do about it? Structured like a Shakespeare five-act (relax, it’s only 90 minutes), THIN MINTS follows a troop of scouts during a seven-day woodland retreat as they prepare for an important election. The play scores 100% on the Bechdel test and is a cautionary tale on the absurdity of political power dynamics. THIN MINTS received a workshop production at Columbia University in 2016 and has continued its development life in Chicago.

Space is limited. Visit Prop Theatre for more information.
