Three Hares is a theater collective that produces socially conscious and politically engaged theater. Led by Producing Artistic Director Noam Shapiro, Three Hares brings together a rotating and diverse cohort of multidisciplinary artists to examine how we respond during moments of crisis or change. Recently Three Hares has developed projects exploring the Filipino immigrant experience in America, the humanitarian crisis at the United States’ Southern border, sexual harassment in the theater, interfaith marriage, and modern parenting. Three Hares is committed to developing new theater that champions emerging voices and to building rehearsal rooms and audiences that are inclusive, diverse, progressive, and international.

Three Hares is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non- profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Three Hares must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Stories of domestic workers, young lovers, judgmental church ladies, selfless overseas fathers, undocumented immigrants, and millennials living their best lives on social media. On This Side of the World is a theatrical song cycle capturing voices from the Filipino immigrant experience in the United States. Through fourteen musical monologues, the cycle lifts up the stories of new immigrants and the children of immigrant families. What emerges is a mosaic of love and loss, humor and heartache, yearning and faith eight thousand miles from home.

A Jew, a Catholic, a Southern Baptist, two Muslims, an Atheist, and an Agnostic get on board a pedal trolley to kick off Emerson Greene's bachelorette weekend. Although most of the bridesmaids are here to party, Hana Mian, the groom's eldest sister, has a few small questions about the interfaith Jewish-Muslim wedding, like: is the caterer aware that his meal needs to be kosher and halal? No matter how high tensions get there's only one rule: you can't get off the trolley...

When Bozo, a hapless clown, discovers an abandoned baby, he's tasked with teaching her the difference between right and wrong. But Bozo can't do it alone! He'll need the audience's help as he navigates between good and bad role models. As he'll discover, the line between right and wrong isn't always so clear, and nice guys sometimes finish last. Will we find a way to come together for the sake of the child, or will we tear this baby apart?
