Tom Stoppard's masterpiece is one of the greatest plays of the last 20 years – a tale of two centuries, shifting as seamlessly between eras as it does between farcical comedy and heartbreaking romance. It is 1809 and young Thomasina is working on geometry and poetry, while her tutor Septimus is working on her mother. It is also the present day, and Hannah and Bernard are scholars and sleuths trying to rediscover the events we see unfold in Thomasina's world. This comedy of misunderstandings and misinterpretations is set up against a passionate quest to unravel the mysteries of history, art, science, and love.
A lover awaits. A bride flees into the night. A celebration becomes a nightmare. Lorca's sensual tragedy of passion and revenge is brought to life in this unique collaboration with Drexel University.
Experience Philadelphia favorites Mary Martello and Ben Dibble together as never before in this suspenseful, timely American drama that grapples with questions of moral certainty...and doubt.

In the spring, the Wilma will stage back-to-back productions of William Shakespeare's Hamlet and Tom Stoppard's now classic behind-the-scenes comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, both directed by Wilma Artistic Director Blanka Zizka and using essentially the same cast for both productions. Bringing freshness to all aspects of the play, the title character in Shakespeare's tragedy will be played by the transformational and powerful actress, Zainab Jah, who recently appeared as Prudence in The Convert at the Wilma. Believed by many to be the greatest play written by Shakespeare, and by many others to be the greatest play written in the English language, the Wilma is excited to throw our voices into the mix. The fight for the throne of Denmark, quest for moral righteousness, and the complexities of vengeance within a 21st century context will be reexamined on the Wilma stage.
Shakespeare's masterpiece is a dark and thrilling story of ghosts, secrets and revenge. By rights, Prince Hamlet should be king, but his Uncle Claudius has stepped into the position after the untimely death of Hamlet's father. When the dead king's ghost rises and calls for revenge, Hamlet heads down a dangerous path filled with madness and uncertainty. In a world where no one can be trusted, where can you turn?
Fueled by ambition, Macbeth cuts a bloody path to power, spurred on by his wife, Lady Macbeth and a prophecy that he will be king. Before House of Cards and Game of Thrones there was Macbeth.
