This was a high energy, well staged and acted production that we're very glad we attended. We really didn't know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. The theater-in-the-round venue worked perfectly for the battle scenes and frequent speedy departures. We certainly would go to another CUA drama production.

Intimate and innovative. Well performed. Scene transitions were a bit loose, but a great chance to see one of Will’s plays that is not performed often.

Written by William Shakespeare

Evil queens. Licentious villains. Royal princes stolen in their infancy. Unbridled jealousy. Magic potions. Urbane wits and comic halfwits. Mistaken identities, visitations of the gods, magic talismans and even a Deus ex Machina. All come together in an epic tale of courage and resilience as Shakespeare’s most intrepid heroine undergoes a hazardous journey to regain her lost love and find redemption.
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.
