In the midst of the Civil War, on the eve of battle, enemies come together on a Tennessee battlefield to enact Shakespeare’s play about the young king of England who leads his nation in a war against France. Throughout the 19th Century, Shakespeare was performed and read in almost every part of our country. Politicians quoted him in their speeches, generals in their orders, soldiers in their letters home, and slaves and former slaves often turned to Shakespeare to educate and express. There ar.e records of Shakespeare being performed while soldiers waited to go into battle. This NSF production, directed by Nat McIntyre, will use Shakespeare's historical drama to reflect on the American Civil War, using the very words that so many of its participants used to examine their world.

Sign Language-Interpreted Performance TBA
