By George Brant

Directed by Tyler Dobrowsky

Providence, 1942: Oberon Play House’s director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director’s wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare’s Henry V, assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theater experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence when the show must go on! A surprisingly modern and moving comedy about the singular way art and community reveal our boldest selves even in the darkest times.

Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare
In a city besieged with crime and pay-to-play politics, a corrupt deputy and a devout nun enter into a perverse bargain. Will modest Isabella surrender her chastity to save her brother from the sex crime he’s accused of? Or will she preserve her maidenhead and condemn her brother to death? In Shakespeare’s blackest comedy, Measure for Measure is a scathing indictment of political and religious hypocrisy as well as a darkly poetic quest to discover the true nature of justice.

J Studio, February 22-24 and March 1-3, 2018, 7:30 p.m., February 25 and March 4, 2 p.m.

Othello @ Trinity Rep | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Whitney White
Featuring Jude Sandy as Othello, Rebecca Gibel as Desdemona, and Stephen Thorne as Iago
Friendship and betrayal, love and jealousy. Once Othello’s most trusted confidante, Iago’s envy-fueled passions unleash a betrayal with catastrophic results for Othello and his beloved bride Desdemona. Shakespeare’s profound tragedy is an enduring story of race, love, envy, and repentance. This stripped down retelling is the portrait of an unraveling mind amid a society engulfing and destroying its very best.
