This celebrated musical play is set against the backdrop of Berlin in the early 1930s, where a young American writer in search of inspiration rents a cheap flat and discovers both the glories of the city and its sinister side – the Nazis and widespread anti-Semitism.  He also falls in love with an aspiring singer, full of sexual bravado, who performs at the Kit Kit Klub.  Directed by Meaghan Deiter

'Richard II'

by William Shakespeare

March 26-28 & April 2-4 at 7:30 PM
Fenwick Theatre
2nd Floor O'Kane Hall

Believing himself to be divinely anointed, Richard II acts capriciously, abuses his power and leads England into a ruinously expensive foreign war.  What makes Shakespeare's history play so fascinating is the journey of its protagonist: ultimately stripped of his crown, title and dignity, this arrogant and self-absorbed man confronts his own humanity and comes to terms with the true nature of power.  Edward Isser directs one of Shakespeare's subtlest and most surprising masterpieces.
