As the Globe Turns

DESCRIPTION:  The perfect show for introducing actors and audiences to Shakespeare!

In this hilarious comedy, a group of traveling Shakespearian actors, down on their luck, attempt to court a rich patroness of the arts in order to get backing for their shows.  Meanwhile, a trio of romances bloom backstage in ways that reflect the themes of many of Shakespeare's plays.  Mistaken identities and disguises complicate the action and add some belly laughs along the way.

The show also makes clear that Shakespeare's world view, embodied in his great works, are eminently Christian and moral.

CAST:  4 men, 7 women.

LENGTH:  Two acts; 90 min. to 2 hours, plus intermission.

REQUIREMENTS:  Scene changes may be done with simple minimalist sets.
