April 30 - May 30


Each year ASC selects plays that correspond with a Shakespeare title through its groundbreaking SNC initiative—and this one is a winner indeed. The story, in conversation with Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, follows a maidservant in 1611 who is accused of adultery and must fight to tell her story—and defend her honor.
