Whether it be in love or war, Shakespeare's characters will promise the moon, and in their next breath take it back again. Audience members are invited to decide for themselves whether karmic justice is served when notable liars in the canon go back on their sworn words. Drawn from several plays, this Naked Shakespeare production brings together a collection of characters notoriously bending and twisting their oaths in order to suit their own personal needs. Director Michael Levine intertwines text selections from three tragedies and one comedy in this fast-moving evening of entertainment in which characters are literally shackled by their words by hooded figures moving about a shadowy dungeon-like world. Eight actors play multiple characters in an evening that visually demonstrates the rewards offered by those who are untrue. 'Oath Breakers' performs twice on Friday and Saturday on the first weekend in December in the Ballroom at Mechanics Hall. Both performances begin at 7pm. The First Friday performance is free, and Saturday's show is $10 for all ages. Visit Acorn's website at www.acorn-productions.org for more information or to order tickets.

William Shakespeare's THE TRAGEDY OF KING RICHARD THE THIRD, currently presented at The Curtain Theatre produced by The Baron's Men, written around 1592 and has been debated in historical circles as often as it has been performed. There has been even more discussion about the iconic play and it's controversial plot since King Richard III's physical remains were discovered under a car park in Leicester, England in August 2012 and reinterred with royal honor in March of last year. When Shakespeare wrote his play, 100 years after Richard's death and the rise of the House of Tudor to power, it was incumbent upon the playwright to cast the ancestor of Elizabeth I (Henry VII) in the role of heroic savior and the old regime shown in as bad a light as possible. The Elizabethan audience would have equated evil with physical deformity, so the hunchbacked villain was born. After intense study of the recovered remains of the king, including a positive DNA identity test, we now know that Richard suffered from a severe spinal curvature but he did not have any other disability. We know that he was also a well seasoned battlefield general who, from an early age lead the forces of his older brother, Edward IV, to put down rebellion across the length and breadth of England during the waning years of the War of the Roses. The play features twelve murders attributed to Richard in the five acts, including ghosts of his victims who haunt his dreams. Historians have outright dismissed many of them as Elizabethan propaganda and have cast serious doubt on the remainder. Shakespeare endures where history fails and the fictional plots, plans and murders make for a gripping story, entertaining audiences for 400 years. I will admit to being a bit of a 'Ricardian', (a believer in the redemption of Richard III as a man) and have devoted years of study to the subject.
