Jane Anger

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

Are you ready for a bloody good time? It’s 1606 and an egomaniacal Shakespeare (Michael Urie) is plagued… with writer’s block. London’s theatres are closed and the actual plague has the Bard stuck in quarantine with his “young” apprentice, Francis (Ryan Spahn). In through the window climbs Jane Anger (Amelia Workman), a Cunning Woman and a writer of her own merit with a dream to change history (and the cajones to make it happen). As Shakespeare attempts to write King Lear, Jane and Anne Hathaway (of Stratford, not Hollywood, played by playwright Talene Monahon) take matters into their own more than capable hands. The New York Times raves that this bawdy production “has a liveliness that the exceptional cast runs away with, delivering Monahon’s mile-a-minute gags with zest.”
Content Advisory: This production includes sexual references and blood.
It is recommended for mature audiences.
