Shakespeare in the Theater: a festival of plays written by Shakespeare performed inside a traditional theater space!


Shuga Pie Supreme
Directed by Anne Ciarlone
Using Shakespeare's text as our source material, while also pulling from notable adaptations of the work (Brecht, TS Elliot, etc) and adding our own contemporary pop-culture flair, we will stage a brand new retelling of this story.

Dreamers Often Lie
Written and adapted by Lukas Papenfusscline
Directed by Nick O'Leary

What is Romeo and Juliet if not the tale of house party that's gotten, well, a little out of hand?

Hamlet: What Dreams May Come

Bakerloo Theatre Project
Directed by William Addis
Hamlet: What Dreams May Come is an original non-linear adaptation with 4 actors playing multiple roles. 

King Lear
Directed by Anna Rebek

Through the lens of a seventies cult, exploring the relationship of power and allegiance in the play King Lear. I'll create a multifaceted space with psychedelic projections to grant access to the disintegrating world of King Lear, showing us his madness as we go deep into his mind.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Shakespeare in the Square
This production is a stripped-down version of Midsummer, performed on a bare stage with minimal props and costumes. The cast of six performs all the major roles, exploring the thematic and playful potential of doubling actors as fairies, lovers, royals, and mechanicals


I Mean! Productions
Directed by Temar Underwood
This gender-and race-swapped production of Othello speaks directly to today’s political and social climate. 

A Taste of Shakespeare
Hedgepig Ensemble Theatre
A Taste of Shakespeare is a tasting menu of Shakespeare's greatest love stories and romances

Two Gentlemen of Verona

Monsterpiece Theatre Collective
A whimsical exploration of a farcical plot. Explore the absurdity of Shakespeare's Two Gentleman of Verona's improbable lovers in an over the top Gilbert and Sullivan style romp.
