Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

At first, I was skeptical. The stage, the wardrobe, the overall feel.... Fifteen minutes in and I was sold! My girlfriend and I LOVED this interpretation! By the end of the play, not only were we emotionally invested in these characters, but also awe struck as to how professional a production it was. Highly recommend!
Young lovers, human and fairy royalty, and an amateur theater troupe reel through romance and spellcraft in one of Shakespeare’s most hilarious and enchanting works. Cal Shakes welcomes Aaron Posner—Two River Artistic Director and co-founder of Philadelphia’s Arden Theatre—in his Cal Shakes directorial debut.
