Shakespeare's most enigmatic king wrestles with covetous heirs, rebellious lords and his own conscience as he attempts to keep the throne and his own sanity in Southwest Shakespeare Company's production of King John. Considered by many to be Shakespeare's most underrated play, King John was one of the playwright's earliest works and tells the thrilling story of the "game of thrones" that occurs upon the death of Richard the Lionheart. Filled with some of the most compelling characters Shakespeare ever penned, such as Constance, Philip the Bastard, Hubert and King John himself, the play contains elements reminiscent of Hamlet, King Lear and Macbeth.

Quotes & Highlights
“It is a bravura performance. Using a simple set and a few cutesy sound cues, Bethel manages both to evoke the bone-crunching, blood-spurting horror of the tale and to add winking commentary about it. This is storytelling on steroids, augmented with stellar physical acting that comes and goes in a blink. … ‘The Odyssey’ isn’t just myth. It’s augmented reality.” —azcentral.com
