A PART EQUAL: WOMEN AND MR. SHAKESPEARE/Theatre Converse

Sat. Dec. 1, 2018 | 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

A PART EQUAL: WOMEN AND MR. SHAKESPEARE

– by Derek Davidson, directed by Melissa Owens

Converse College, in collaboration with Appalachian State University, plans to take a newly modified one-act version of last season’s A Part Equal to the 2019 International Collegiate Theatre Festival/Festival Fringe in Edinburgh, Scotland, and the ticket sales from these fundraising performances will be applied directly to the cost of the trip.

A Part Equal: Women and Mr. Shakespeare explores the influence of the feminine on William Shakespeare’s writing, featuring 15 women’s stories highlighting the creation, manipulation, and sustaining of his reputation over the course of the last four centuries. Told in episodic narrative and utilizing somatic movement and new live music, this script uses a combination of artistic supposition and real women’s actual words as source material. This production of A Part Equal introduces new characters, and showcases a smaller cast as they bring these historical women to life, from Mary Arden Shakespeare to Sarah Bernhardt to Maya Angelou.
