Davis Performing Arts Center, Gonda Theatre 37th and O St., N.W., Washington

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and Directed by Anita Maynard-Losh

GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY THEATER & PERFORMANCE STUDIES PROGRAM

Republic or Empire? What happens when one man seeks absolute power through populism? How susceptible are the People to the persuasion of compelling rhetoric? Is it ever justifiable to use violence to protect a democracy? With support from the Arena Stage/Georgetown University/Andrew R. Ammerman F'72 Partnership, this production moves Shakespeare's classic into the context of 2017 America, with its ubiquitous media coverage, cult of personality, and the capricious loyalty of public opinion.
