Teacakes and Tarot with Will Wilhelm
Theatre, Classics, and the future of queer inclusive practices are all in the cards during this intimate interview series with your next artistic crush
Teacakes & Tarot with Will Wilhelm is one part cocktail party and one part slumber party! In each episode, TGNC actor and host Will Wilhelm interviews a queer theatre maker for a chat about art, life in the industry, and their connections with Shakespeare. Together, Will and their artistic crush conjure pathways to creating more inclusive and queer-friendly new work and approaches to the classics. After a lovely interview, Will offers each guest a tarot and sonnet reading creating a sensationally live yet intimate conclusion to their shared time. Teacakes & Tarot with Will Wilhelm offers insight, inspiration, and a little incidental education in all things queer, classic, and cosmic.
Since its first episodes in September 2020, audiences have called Teacakes & Tarot with Will Wilhelm “a much needed TRANSfusion [in American Theatre]” and “the BEST part of my 2020.” Guests can watch the livestream or register at the link below to participate in the action via Zoom.
Teacakes & Tarot with Will Wilhelm was co-created by Erin Murray and is presented by the Island Shakespeare Festival as a part of the Shakespeare Playground Series, which presents digital programming that incorporates creative intersections with Shakespeare.
