Current Production

Join us for our annual Shakespeare Under the Stars as we present Richard III directed by Dan Hanchrow. Richard III is the culmination of the original throne game, the Wars of the Roses, between the Lancasters and the Yorks. The Yorks have seized control of England, but now their greatest threat comes from within, from their own brother Richard. Murder, betrayal, and devious plots culminate in a war that would prove to be the last time the rule of England was determined by force. This production is transposed some five hundred years forward, and a universe over, to the gangster movies of the 1990s, in a sort of Shakespeare – Tarantino ‘collaboration’. Tickets went on sale on May 1 through Brown Paper Tickets. Bring blankets, folding chairs and a picnic and enjoy¬†Shakespeare Under the Stars!
