Pretending to Be Danish

by David Manis
Directed by Richard Hamburger

Dakin Matthews (Waitress), Cara Ricketts (Time and the Conways), Liv Rooth (Desire), Robert Stanton (A Free Man of Color), and more lead a delightful evening of short plays asking:  "What’s it like performing Shakespeare today?"  Misconceived “concepts”, being attracted to your co-star, nervous school boards, memory problems, and desperately trying to walk like a king are just a few of the challenges awaiting those who dare to tackle the Bard in 2018.

Screenplay by Stalin

By Tom Fontana
Directed by Laura Savia

Featuring Zeljko Ivanek (Three Billboards..., Madam Secretary), Dean Winters (Oz, 30 Rock), Lee Tergesen (Oz), Leslie Fray, and more!

When Joseph Stalin commissions two writers to create a screenplay of his life, Vasilij and Fyodor know they have an important job to do; they just need a little more time — and vodka — to complete it. Tom Fontana (Oz, Homicide) draws on Samuel Beckett to tackle contemporary issues of censorship in this timely and hilarious evening. Laura Savia, associate artistic director of Williamstown Theater Festival, directs.
