Lovers and Executioners
Rescheduled for Fall, 2018!
This "startlingly modern" tale marries the best of renaissance verse and swordplay with a contemporary tone. Calling the play "funny, grim, superb" the Washington Post wrote: "Strand's very free adaptation is like the best comedy, wild yet precise. He's dared to translate Montfleury's 17th-century poetry into 20th-century verse, and the language rollicks along from comic anachronism to melancholy aphorism." Keeping certain conventions of the genre, such as the commedia dell'arte-inspired comedy, the play focuses on the very serious questions of justice and revenge. It features a superb leading-actress breeches role and a coup de theatre ending. "Darkly hilarious, brightly poetic and emotionally scary," said Washington City Paper.
