Every Performance is an Interpretation!

  • Santa Fe Woman's Club 1616 Old Pecos Trail Santa Fe, NM, 87505 United States (map)

Shakespeare is famously ambiguous on the page: How does Isabella respond to the Duke’s two marriage proposals? Are Katherina and Petruchio in an abusive relationship or a joyful partnership of fire? How does Goneril respond to Lear’s diatribe on her fertility?

Tonight we have professional actors presenting various interpretations of scenes, providing an excellent insight into how Shakespeare’s ambiguity creates so many wide-ranging presentations of the rich characters. Audience members will be encouraged to participate in the direction of the interpretations, so come with your opinions and make them visible on the stage!

Cost: $10

So our virtues lie in the interpretation of the time.
