Henry V

 

It’s 1962, and with the arms race and space race at full throttle, pressure is mounting for the new ruler Henry and his cabinet cronies to do something.  Well…anything, really. After the monarch of France insults him, power hungry Henry leaps into war (with some prodding from his “advisors”).  Outnumbered and facing sure disaster, Henry’s political instinct kicks in to gamble on one last epic fight. “Henry V” exposes the behind the scenes maneuverings of a government’s war machine.

The Comedy of Errors

 

Two sets of long lost twins unknowingly cross paths and set the stage for an evening of mistaken identity, mixed up confusion, and mayhem! This comic master piece is full of slapstick and sight gags, puns and pratfalls. Keeping track of which twin is which is only half the fun, as Shakespeare also stacks the deck with some of his most outrageous characters, including a jealous wife, a seductive courtesan, a hapless old man seeking his sons, a zany conjurer attempting an exorcism, and even a nun who’s not all she seems to be!
