“Written in 1727 and based off of original Shakespearean manuscripts, Double Falsehood is a layered exploration of honor, rape, discourse, dishonesty, promises and love. The classical text follows the form of a standard 5 act Shakespearean comedy, surfeit with cross-dressing, anguished lovers, foibled fathers, heroic royalty and privy (yet silent) citizenry. It is a smart and scathing contrivance that demands dialogue around why, in nearly 300 years, our society continues to deal in violence, blame and victimization.

The three phase project is designed to spark a conversation and incite a change in our society as a whole.” –description from the company website
