Richard II

Directed by Michael McCarthy

Richard rules England. His kingship is accepted as Divine Right. All powerful, he is nonetheless increasingly beset by his own foibles. Misguided and arrogant, his rocky reign dissolves as a once competent monarch’s vainglory divides the nobility and sets into motion a dynastic division that inalterably leads to a century of war.

She Speaks

A showcase of Shakespeare's women.
Directed by Leanne G. Stump

Arden Now (As You Like It)

Directed by Melissa Schick

This collaborative adaptation sets Shakespeare's As You Like It in a world where ideals of beauty and desirability are more celebratory of people's unique individuality and where mainstream society does not attempt to impose a restrictive binary concept of gender to categorize people. We strive to tell this classic story in ways that are fully inclusive, body-positive, and sex-positive. We have cut the original text down, made some creative edits, and have added music, movement, and poetry that express love and exuberance through a variety of times, cultures, and genres. Because if all the world's a stage, everyone should be represented.
