The final chapter of The King's Shadow is about to begin. Henry the Fifth, opening March 14, 2020, completes the first season in Brave Spirits Theatre's two-year project to stage Shakespeare's eight history plays about the Wars of the Roses. During a tumultuous period of less than a hundred years, England experienced civil war and political upheaval as the throne switched hands nine times. Shakespeare dramatized these events over the course of his career in eight remarkable plays: Richard the Second, Henry the Fourth Part 1, Henry the Fourth Part 2, Henry the Fifth, Henry the Sixth Part 1, Henry the Sixth Part 2, Henry the Sixth Part 3, and Richard the Third. Brave Spirits Theatre is making history by becoming the first professional American theatre company to mount full productions of Shakespeare's two tetralogies and perform them in repertory.

Returning to King's Head Theatre by popular demand, JEWa??ish is a romcom revolving around the tempestuous and obstacle-ridden relationship of Max, who is Jewish, and TJ, who isn't. Continuing their situationship is not as easy as when they were part of the university's Polyamory Society, alongside two millennia of inherited trauma on top of two decades of millennial stereotypes, maybe there's too much of a cultural divide?
