In a decade of decadence, during the Victorian SteamPunk era, Duke Vincentio abdicates his throne to the severely chaste Lord Angelo, with instructions to exact punishments as he deems fit. But what happens when his pureness comes face-to-face with his own burning lust? And will Isabella bed him to save her brother?
With boundless references to human bondage, this play begs its fresh billing as “50 Shades of Shakespeare.” The cast of roughly a dozen will draw characters from the audience in this feverishly paced rendition, set to a soundtrack stretching the spectrum from Nine Inch Nails to Mads Tolling and the Mad Men.
With emphasis on making the audience complicit in the story, INTREPID FRINGE builds upon previous success with Macbeth, Winter’s Tale, King Lear, Everything Must Go, and Julius Caesar.
Come, find yourself Bound by the Bard!
