This story traces the tragic downfall of Othello, a Moor and a mercenary who became general of the Venetian armies.

On an over-crowded country estate, a retired art professor, his second wife, and the daughter and brother-in- law from his first marriage navigate mid-life crises, unrequited love, a last-minute murder plot…and each other. Delusion and despair compete with humor and hope in Chekhov’s beloved story about what is and what might have been.

Lysistrata

June 13-16, 20-23

by: Aristophanes

Directed: Shannon Hurst

 

The theme of Lysistrata proclaims, "make love, not war!”  With the Peloponnesian Wars raging, the distressed women of Athens take matters into their own hands, refusing to make love with their husbands until the war is over.  This social spoof, written by Aristophanes in 411 B.C., is as relevant to modern concerns about war as it was in ancient Greece.
