Curt is a young, jaded acting teacher. Anna's a pushy freshman preparing for an audition in a Shakespeare play. When she requests Curt's help and ends up getting a harsh critique, the encounter forms a powerful bond between the two in the psychological drama Breaking the Shakespeare Code. The pair's 16-year relationship plays out over three scenes as they deceive and manipulate one another while exploring the human nature in some of Shakespeare's most intricate works. Learn More

“If it gets really touch-and-go, we can always throw the dog on the grill.”
Between the laughter and horror lies a haunting and intensely shocking portrait of the cruelties and atrocities of a country at war with itself. First performed in Belgrade in 1997, Family Stories uses the games of four children to explore issues of censorship, war, oppression and rebellion.
Biljana Srbljanovic is a Serbian playwright and politician. She is also a part-time lecturer at the Faculty of the Dramatic Arts in Belgrade. Her plays have been staged in 50 countries.
