ADVENTURE SUBSCRIPTION: See all four exciting plays coming in early 2018.
Red Velvet, by Lolita Chakrabarti, carries the audience backstage during a history-making performance of Othello in 1833 London. A major theatre company has, for the first time, cast an actor of color in the role of the great Venetian general, sparking drama on and off the stage. Red Velvet is based on the true story of American-born Shakespearean actor Ira Aldridge.
The Winter’s Tale is Shakespeare’s beautiful, epic fable about redemption, following the travails of a royal family through seasons of lost and found love. Inflamed by unfounded jealousy, the king banishes his queen and infant daughter. Their paths intersect again in a faraway springtime.
Our family classic Alice in Wonderland, by Eva Le Gallienne and Florida Friebus, is innovatively adapted from the classic Lewis Carroll stories. It has everything you love about Alice, including the beloved characters, wild costumes, and fabulous wordplay.
Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is perfect an enchanting night with a picnic in-the-Ruins in Ellicott City. Additional children’s tickets for the outdoor show are free (two per paying adult).
