Hamlet Isn't Dead to Stage Female-Led KING JOHN

Article Pixel

Hamlet Isn't Dead's King John is a one-of-a-kind experience you won't want to miss!

The world around John crumbles as she struggles for the control she believes she deserves. This unique perspective, King John portrayed by a woman, will explore the struggles of a usurping leader within a society of sexism. Watch as she and those around her grapple with loyalty, morality, and what they are willing to sacrifice to get what they want.

King John is a story of power that corrupts, a poison in the soul to which no one is immune. The show is one of Shakespeare's least-produced plays, but Hamlet Isn't Dead's production breathes new life into centuries-old history. Don't miss the opportunity to see this rarely-told story told from a truly distinct perspective.

Hamlet Isn't Dead is also happy to partner with Artists Striving to End Poverty for this production. "ASTEP was conceived by Broadway Musical Director Mary-Mitchell Campbell and Juilliard students to transform the lives of youth using the most powerful tool they had: their art. Today, ASTEP connects performing and visual artists with underserved youth in the U.S. and around the world to awaken their imaginations, foster critical thinking, and help them break the cycle of poverty."

"Hamlet Isn't Dead is New York City's 286th-best Shakespeare-related theatre troupe. Founded in 2013, they are dedicated to presenting the works of William Shakespeare in chronological order, from Two Gentlemen of Verona to Two Noble Kinsmen. Their work focuses on simplicity of design and greatness of talent, believing that the stories Shakespeare told have survived the past few centuries for a reason. It's good theatre done by good actors for good audiences."
