Immortal Longings:
An Argument Erupts Among Shakespeare’s Greatest Women

Immortal Longings

What does Juliet have to say to Cleopatra? How can Kate and Lady Macbeth exist in the same room? What happens when Shakespeare’s women step out from the pages of their plays and discuss their lives, their loves and whether their fates should remain forever unchanged?

A banquet of beautiful scenes from Shakespeare, Immortal Longings is an evening with ten of the most impressive women ever written. The verse is soaring and the furniture is flying. This is not to be missed.

March 19–April 5, 2009 at the Zuzi Theatre
