Season 20

Feb 23, 2008–Mar 29, 2008

3829 N. Broadway

Strawdog Artistic Director Nic Dimond, architect of our hit productions of Julius Caesar and Measure for Measure continues Strawdog’s 20th Season exploration of the theme of dynasty, taking on a mean new cutting of Shakespeare’s classic story of a man who carves his way through his family, cutting every throat that stands between him and the throne.

As visualized by director Nic Dimond, the struggle for the throne of England is a family affair … as intimate as that of a Eugene O’Neill drama.”
