WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"If you like action-packed thrillers," writes Lynnea Benson, Artistic Director of Frog and Peach Theatre, "you are going to love King John." She calls the seldom-produced history play "Game of Thrones, Shakespeare style," being filled with wars over crowns, gold and power; craven courtiers, bickering in-laws, a greedy, power-mad Cardinal; illegitimate relatives and two very ambitious Queen Mothers. She will direct the classic April 24 to May 18, 2014 featuring a cast of Frog and Peach stalwarts including Karen Lynn Gorney ("Saturday Night Fever," "All My Children") as the ruthlessly clever Queen Elinor.
