Los Angeles Women's Shakespeare Company to Present Wicked Wilde Shakespeare Festival logo
Los Angeles Women's Shakespeare Company will present The Wicked Wilde Shakespeare Festival, produced, adapted and directed by Lisa Wolpe, at Santa Monica's Miles Memorial Playhouse, May 29-June 27.

The Festival will feature the company's streamlined, gender-bending versions of classic plays, including Macbeth3, in which three male actors perform a dozen roles, including Lady Macbeth and the diabolical Porter; A Tyrant's Tale, adapted from The Winter's Tale and exploring the nature of leadership, loyalty, and the redemptive power of enduring love; a gender-bent version of The Importance of Being Earnest; and Lovers and Madmen, in which an all female, student cast performs a selection of scenes from Shakespeare, playing both men and women.

The cast will include John Achorn, Cynthia Beckert, Linda Bisesti, Mark Bramhall, Laura Covelli, David Glasser, Andrew Heffernan, Scott McRae, Heidi Rose Robbins, Katrinka Wolfson, Lisa Wolpe, and Kevin Vavasseur.

The creative team will include Mia Torres (scenic design), Maura McGuinness (lighting design), and Rachel Myles (sound design).
