Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jessica Kubzansky
The Bard’s most intimate of family tragedies about the terrible force of love and the breakdown of a man who has everything—power, position, and passion—only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal, and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay for choosing wrong.
Please note that this production will have gunshot sound effects.
Running Time: 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission. Late seating at House Manager’s discretion.
