Marin Shakespeare Company Begins Season With KING JOHN, 7/6-8/12

June 8
3:20 PM 2012


Marin Shakespeare Company begins its 2012 outdoor summer festival season with "King John."
This rousing story of battle for the English throne, the rarely performed "King John" is an action-packed history play full of humor, drama and pathos when King John is asked to renounce his throne in favor of his nephew Arthur. Against a backdrop of shifting fortunes, politics and family dynamics, Shakespeare reveals human complexity and fallibility in this compression of history. Directed by Lesley Schisgall Currier
