INTO THE BREECHES!
March 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10 – $15
By George Brandt
Directed by Pat Robertell-Hudson
Oberon Play House’s director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director’s wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare’s Henriad (Henry IV and Henry V), assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theatre experience. The women pull on their breeches and move from the sidelines to centerstage. Set during World War II, these women show a spirit of collaboration, dauntless enthusiasm, and a belief in the power of art to heal the world. They manage to keep the home fires, and the footlights, burning in this warm and hilarious comedy.
“Into the Breaches!” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
