On the Mainstage

Glory

April 5-8, 2018

Adapted & Directed by Holly Cate 
from William Shakespeare's Henry VI tetralogy
Faculty Spotlight Performance by Troy Dwyer

Teeming with larger-than-life characters, gripping action scenes, and plenty of violence, Glory chronicles the conflict between two competing royal houses that eventually erupts into the War of the Roses, one of the bloodiest periods in English history. This is Shakespeare at his most visceral and his most political, and Cate’s fierce, provocative adaptation harkens back to an era of crowns and crossed swords while still feeling startling contemporary — a world in which rule of law has collapsed and violence is the currency of state.
