An unscrupulous ruling class, a crippling lust for power and ever-shifting allegiances shake the very foundation of society during the troubled 13th Century reign of King John of England. Drama Desk Award-nominee Vince Gatton (The Temperamentals, Candy and Dorothy) leads an ensemble cast onto the battlefield of Shakespeare's rarely performed history play in this new adaptation by Ross Williams. NY Shakespeare Exchange's signature style explores Shakespeare's soaring poetry from two different angles, keeping one foot firmly planted in the blood and guts politics of medieval sovereignty while the other trudges into the celebrity-obsessed quagmire of the 21st Century.
