Teacakes and Tarot with Will Wilhelm
One part cocktail party and one part slumber party!
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.
