Upcoming Shows


performances start September 1st

Intimate. Ingenious. Intoxicating.

Will Shakespeare is an upstart crow looking to make his name. Kit Marlowe is the greatest poet of the age and knows it. He's also a spy for the English crown. In the back room of a tavern, against the backdrop of a polarized and paranoid England where even the slightest misstep can lead to a death sentence, the two writers embark on a risky collaboration. Artistic partnership becomes a dangerous dance of inspiration, artistry, seduction, and possible betrayal. Experience the thrill of creative expression and the precariousness of living in a society where every move is scrutinized.


“Glorious… [a] jewel of a script!”
-Houston Chronicle


Intimate. Inclusive. Inspiring. Get IN.
