By Phillip Massinger

In The Unnatural Combat, Massinger offers a world where there exists a thin line between virtue and vice, and warns us that every evil thing we do makes the next that much easier. At a time when cruelty has become the lingua franca of our political discourse, The Unnatural Combat calls out to us from four centuries ago, begging us to consider whither we may be going.

Unnatural Combat

By John Fletcher

Fletcher’s play is set in London after Katharina’s death, and Petruchio is remarried to Maria. However, he still has nightmares that Katharina will haunt him as a ghost and he resolves to be even firmer with his new wife. While Shakespeare’s Katherina is subdued by her bullying husband Petruchio, Fletcher turns things on their head by letting women tame men. Sit back and enjoy this radical sequel to William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

The Sociable Companions

By Francis Beaumont

Adapted by: Amanda M. Rogus

A theatre company’s journey takes an unexpected turn as they attempt to perform their play, THE LONDON MERCHANT. Moments after the show begins, a couple in the audience interjects as they rewrite the story to star their own son, Rafe. As the play continues, this meta-theatrical wonderment evolves into a spin on The Knight’s Tale and Love Triangle with a plot driven by adventure.
