Description

by Tina Packer

directed by Eric Tucker

starring Tina Packer

featuring Nigel Gore

Tina Packer’s Limited Boston Engagement  

Women of Will, the masterwork of Shakespeare & Company’s Founding Artistic Director, Tina Packer, is the culmination of her decades-long fascination with Shakespeare’s heroines. Through a combination of scenes, monologues and sparkling commentary, Ms. Packer takes us on a journey, illuminating the evolution of the feminine in Shakespeare’s plays, and in so doing, showing us the ways in which Shakespeare believed we could build a better world.

Women of Will features a special two-part schedule: For the first three weeks (October 13-30), The Nora Theatre Company will present The Overview, featuring highlights of the five-part The Complete Journey, which will be presented in the final week (November 2-6).

Presented by The Nora Theatre Company.
