Portia asks Brutus, “Am I yourself, but, as it were, in sort or limitation, to keep with you at meals, comfort your bed, and talk to you sometimes?"
While a wedding is the end to many a Shakespeare play, it’s only the beginning of the journey of marriage. After the world wind of romance, comes the hard work of balancing the dynamics of two people, building one life out of two and struggling with jealousy, equality, teamwork and disparate goals.
Join us nightly as these actors explore the dynamics of married life as seen through the spouses of Shakespeare’s plays. Each scene reflects a different dynamic, perhaps one you will recognize from your own marriage.
Featuring: Michael Amendola, Kathy Rose Center, Shauna Danos, Bridget Farias, Alejandro McDonald-Villarreal, Erin Molson, Robert Moncrieff, Garry Peters, Laura Ray, Robert Stevens, Heath Thompson & Katie Van Winkle.
