Arden of Faversham

November 13-17, 2017

Alice Arden has a problem. She’s fallen hard for a handsome fellow with a promising future. But he’s not her husband. What’s an early modern woman to do? When “Love is a god, and marriage is but words,” there’s only one answer—hire some hit men, of course! Resurgens Theatre Company returns to the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse this November with the earliest “true crime” drama to appear on the English stage, Arden of Faversham. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, our “original practices” production will not only provide Atlanta audiences with their first opportunity to experience this pioneering work of Elizabethan domestic tragedy, but also their first chance to hear Shakespeare’s beginnings as a collaborative playwright and theatre practitioner.
