Public Shakespeare Presents:<br>TYRANT

Public Shakespeare Presents:
TYRANT

Tuesday, October 2

As an aging, tenacious Elizabeth I clung to power, William Shakespeare probed the social causes, the psychological roots, and the twisted consequences of tyranny. With uncanny insight, his plays shine a spotlight on the infantile psychology and unquenchable narcissism of demagogues—as well as the cynicism and opportunism of the various enablers and hangers-on who surround them. Incisive commentary from Stephen Greenblatt (Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics), combined with readings from Henry VI, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, and Richard III, will illuminate the ways in which Shakespeare exposes and explores the lust for absolute power and the catastrophic consequences of its execution.

GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY

Friday, October 19

Following a critically acclaimed sold-out run at London’s Old Vic and a West End transfer, the “astonishing” (The Guardian) new show from Olivier winner and Tony Award nominee Conor McPherson (The Weir, Shining City, The Seafarer) and music icon Bob Dylan will make its American premiere.

Dylan’s inimitable songbook is authentically transformed into this achingly beautiful story of a down-on-its-luck community on the brink of change in Duluth, Minnesota in 1934.

Named “one of the greatest playwrights working today” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, McPherson has created a new show, weaving the music of our greatest poet-singer-songwriter into a piercing drama about home, heart, and the searching determination of the American soul.

From The Public’s Emerging Writers Group alum and 2017-18 Tow Playwright-in-Residence Patricia Ione Lloyd (Pretty Hunger) and Obie Award-winning director Jo Bonney (Mlima's Tale) comes a stunning, genre-bending new drama about the haunting of a black family in America.

In the aftermath of a messy divorce and a daughter coming out as queer, Deborah is trying to keep things normal at home. But as black people continue to be killed beyond their four walls, the outside finds its way in, blurring the lines between family dynamics, politics, and the spirit world. How long can family dinners keep the dangers outside at bay?

Filled with dark humor and boiling suspense, EVE’S SONG examines our present racial climate through the eyes of a regular American family.

“Whimsical and thought-provoking. Inventively directed by Leigh Silverman.” – Stage and Cinema

“Highly imaginative, funny and fantastical.” Broadway World SD

After its initial run in Public Studio, Hansol Jung’s fascinating and unforgettable new play WILD GOOSE DREAMS returns to The Public in a co-production with La Jolla Playhouse, where it had a critically-acclaimed run last season.

Minsung is a “goose father,” a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to America for a better life. Deeply lonely, he escapes onto the internet and meets Nanhee, a young defector forced to leave her family behind in North Korea. Amidst the endless noise of the modern world, where likes and shares have taken the place of love and touch, Minsung and Nanhee try their best to be real for each other. But after a lifetime of division and separation, is connection possible?

Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Violet, Chinglish, The Outer Space) directs this strikingly original play with music, about two people from two cultures forced to choose between family and freedom.
