In Richard III, Shakespeare’s most villainous king embarks on a fiendishly entertaining and diabolic adventure to scheme and murder his way to the throne. Set in a gothic Victorian hospital and featuring evocative, bloody imagery in the style of Grand Guignol.
Set south of the border, The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were separated at birth and reunite 25 years later with hilarious consequences. Mistaken identities, assumed personas, slapstick physical comedy, and a mariachi band make for a fun-filled family experience.
The internationally acclaimed all-male Propeller Theatre Company comes from England to Boston for the first time in ambitious rotating repertory. Dynamic physicality, imaginative theatricality, and a modern flair shine in their productions.
