King Henry V is all in favor, and to this end he invades France. A good war? A just war? One of Shakespeare’s most beloved history plays offers us a most ambiguous hero, a dubious cause, against-the-odds victories, and one of the most rousing pre-battle speeches ever penned. Join us as we head “Once more unto the breach, dear Friends,” with this streamlined, small cast, ensemble production of King Henry V.


The *Annotated* Taming:
Or, Out of the Saddle, Into the Dirt

From Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew
Adapted & Directed by Toby Vera Bercovici
with music & lyrics by Old Flame

7 p.m.

Ticket Prices: Adult: $15 | Student/Senior: $10 | Child: $7

Katherina Minola, a fiercely independent young woman held in captivity by her father and then sold into marriage to the highest bidder. Her husband Petruchio recognizes her brilliance, and, in his words, the “two raging fires meet together [and] consume the thing that feeds their fury.” Shakespeare’s passionate love story and searing critique of gender roles is turned here into a fresh and politically relevant rock musical. Adapted by Toby Vera Bercovici with music & lyrics by Old Flame.

Rain Policy

As an outdoor theatre company committed to the safety of both audiences and performers, we may sometimes have to adjust for inclement weather. This may include simple delays or holding the show. If we proceed on performing at the Renaissance Center, we recommend all audience members bring rain proof apparel, but the company will have a few umbrellas and ponchos available for use. Alternatively, we may move to our rain space at Emily Dickinson Hall at Hampshire College.
