Milligan to present Shakespeare play
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (September 23, 2009) – The actors of Milligan College bring the stage to life Oct. 15-17 with their fall production of “A Shakespeare Double-Bill: Titus Andronicus and Two Gentlemen of Verona.”
The performance is comprised of abbreviated versions of two plays by William Shakespeare. A troupe of actors, traveling through the area and in need of ready money spy a potential audience promising them scenes of horrors untold or laughs aplenty if allowed to share their talents for cash. Unable to decide whether to try for a tragedy or a comedy, the troupe decides to offer their audience both, in two rapid romps through two of Shakespeare’s earliest works – the gory tragedy of Titus Andronicus and the frothy silliness of Two Gentlemen of Verona.
All performances are open to the public and will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the college’s Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts. For more information visit www.milligan.edu/arts.
