The Revenger's TragedyDirected by Katie Whitlock
A new version by Jesse Berger, freely adapted from the original text by Thomas Middleton, Cyril Tourneur, or Anonymous
November 8th - November 13th in the Wismer TheatreThis mesmerizing Jacobean thriller, written a few years after Hamlet, is a searing examination of humankind's social need for justice and our animal desire for justice and our animal desire for vengeance. Vindice, the "Revenger", sets off a chain reaction of havoc in a corrupt and decadent Venice, which exposes outrageous indulgences and government hypocrisy, and ends in a coup de theatre massacre of epic proportions. Part black comedy, part social satire, the play is a gleefully macabre plot-twisting blender full of Shakespeare's greatest hits.
