Sold Out

By Francis Beaumont, with additional text by Ben Jonson
Adapted and Directed by Marc Silberschatz

The theatre’s always there for you. And if everything gets to be too much, you can take that literally. Such is the case with The London Merchant as it’s taken over by interlopers without shame or decorum. Suddenly, this simple tale of star-crossed lovers bursts its banks.

Heroic knights!
Princesses from faraway lands!
Evil mutant barbers!

Everyone else is just trying to keep up because sometimes for things to turn out right, it all has to go wrong.
