Ruth Draper was a pioneering actress in the early 20th century, taking the stage with only a chair, table and shawl as her props and transforming into myriad characters during her monologues. Now Academy Award-nominated actress Annette Bening is stepping into Draper's shoes and performing some of her most famous monologues, including The Italian Lesson, Doctors and Diets and A Debutante at a Dance. Bening is known for her roles in American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right, Mars Attacks and Running with Scissors. Now you can watch her play a harried society woman, debutante and etiquette instructor all in one night of Ruth Draper's Monologues. Learn More

An extremely smart script and a spot-on cast! Everything came together beautifully and was historical, contemporary, and timeless all at once. A very thought-provoking look at Shakespeare, his Company, and the context that gave rise to his great works. The lingering questions about the Gunpowder Plot and political maneuverings in England at that time are resonant and haunting. Equivocation is a powerful work, and I would not be surprised to read about this production on Broadway someday soon!
Join Shakespeare and his winsome troupe in this fantastic new tale that satiates Bard-loving purists and advocates of groundbreaking theater alike. The runaway hit of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and a sure-to-be classic, _Equivocation _pits the poetry of the world’s greatest playwright against the word of his King. Written in modern English with playful allusions to some of the Bard’s greatest works, Equivocation’s gripping narrative, keen humor and political intrigue culminate in what critics are calling “dazzling,” “a masterful work” and “the must-see play of the season.”
