Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by CUA Professor/Head of the MFA Directing Eleanor Holdridge

Evil queens. Licentious villains. Royal princes stolen in their infancy. Unbridled jealousy. Magic potions. Urbane wits and comic halfwits.

Set against the ancient conflict of a declining Imperial Rome and an insurgent British population, myth and history collide in a grand and timely adventure.
