The Bard: Beautiful, Bold and Bawdy

Home / The Bard: Beautiful, Bold and Bawdy

In a fast moving tour de force, 20 actors present an evening of scenes from 14 plays to showcase how Shakespeare connected, or disconnected people. Couples fall in love, fight against it, destroy those about them, or each other. Fathers are fools before their daughters. Sons mock their mothers. This show is a not to be missed opportunity to enjoy our brightest, boldest, and bawdiest playwright.
