OCTOBER 21

8:00PM   Scenes from Court Life, or the whipping boy and his prince
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Mark Wing-Davey
Yale Repertory Theatre Production at University Theater, 222 York Street

History, remixed. In 17th-century Great Britain, the Stuarts—Charles I and Charles II—defend their divine rights, with the help of a whipping boy. In our own time, Jeb and George W. Bush play hardball—both politics and tennis—battling for power, as siblings and statesmen. By turns intimate and epic, Sarah Ruhl's astonishing new play reveals the cost of dynastic privilege.
8:00PM   Blood Wedding
by Federico Garcia Lorca
Translated by Nahuel Telleria (DRA'16)
Directed by Kevin Hourigan (DRA '17)

By August Wilson
