March 25 – April 3
Opening Night: March 26
In a world defined by an oppressive patriarchy, what power does a daughter have to thrive and follow her dreams? Trapped in a kingdom, with a father who treats her like property, a wicked stepmother out to kill her, and a husband who’s fallen prey to the misogynist machinations of a deplorable villain, what is Princess Imogen to do? In the footsteps of Shakespearean heroines before her, she swaps the skirt for pants and ventures into the unknown on a perilous journey of self-discovery. In this fantastical work from the zenith of Shakespeare’s talent, the improbable becomes probable as kind strangers, dastardly bad guys, battles, gods, and long-lost family pave the wild road to forgiveness and happily ever after.
