"And sometimes we are devils to ourselves"

By William Shakespeare

JULY 26 - AUGUST 6 | SCHUBERT THEATRE

Heroes, kings, lovers, and clowns expose the follies of war with sardonic insight and cynical wit. A mythic who’s who of classic heroic characters—Hector, Ulysses, and Achilles along with the lovers Troilus and Cressida—come face to face with stark realities after a years-too-long military conflict. A satirical, farcical, and sometimes tragic comedy only Shakespeare could deliver, and a rare opportunity to see it.

"Extreme Shakespeare." This production will be rehearsed the way Shakespeare’s company would have: actors arrive with their lines learned, rehearse on their own, wear what they can find, and open in a matter of days. No director, no designers. Just great actors, a compelling play, pure adrenaline, spontaneity, and creativity. Ages 13+
