Audiences will enjoy the witty banter of the Plantagenet clan as marriages, succession, revolts, and manipulation abound. Contemporary audiences will undoubtedly find parallels in this dark comedy with today’s leaders, militaries, family feuds and corporate mishaps as they listen to Goldman’s language. The details may be centuries old, but the facts of human nature remain the same. Written by James Goldman. Off Square’s staged reading will include special musical guests. The event will be followed by a reception in the lobby.
