This mercurial masterpiece could have been written just yesterday. Shakespeare's dark comedy- a provocative mix of humor and intrigue - is an age-old tale of scandal, abuse of power and what happens when repression and profligacy get equally out of balance. It is a story for all times and its contemporary relevance is provocative and palpable.
Shakespeare Theatre Artistic Director Bonnie J. Monte directs a cast of eighteen, including many veteran company members.
