Hail Caesar, home from the wars…what darker fate awaits him? Suspicion, conspiracy, and power lust boil up in a rush to murder in Shakespeare’s gripping political drama. As friendships are sundered and loyalties are tested, guilt pursues the killers to their dark ends. “O judgement! thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason…”
Pride and Prejudice
In Elizabeth Bennet's iconic journey toward love, she learns the dangers of hasty judgment and discovers the difference between superficial and genuine goodness. The sharp wit and irresistible romance of Jane Austen’s masterwork has won generations of fans—now see it come to life on stage in a lively new adaptation by ASC veteran playwright Emma Whipday!
A Midsummer Night's Dream
In this beguiling comedy, no one ends as they began. Magic-wielding fairies, yearning lovers, and foolish clowns swap one role for another as they romp through an enchanted wood—with their antics set down in some of Shakespeare’s most glorious and indelible words. “Lord, what fools these mortals be”….and how we love them!
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] (again)
This internationally acclaimed (and hilarious) [and beloved] distillation of all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays is returning to the Blackfriars Playhouse! In a rush to glory, three madcap players weave their wicked way through Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave audiences breathless and helpless with laughter. After a successful run in 2023, this irreverent, fast-paced romp through Shakespeare's canon is returning this year for another limited engagement, this time with an all-new cast of ASC veteran actors. “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!” - The Today Show
