Endangered Species (theatre) Project presents:
Shakespeare’s Other Women: A New Anthology of Monologues
By Scott Kaiser
Runs about 2 hours (includes an intermission)
It’s 1623. Shakespeare’s editors John Heminges and Henry Condell have finally finished assembling the Bard’s Complete Works. But what to do with the surplus materials? Especially the unused women’s speeches? Shakespeare’s Other Women puts a spotlight on the women in Shakespeare who deserved to have more stage time, or even plays of their own.
Featuring 13 who inhabit dozens of strong characters drawn from Shakespeare, history, and mythology.
