Bad Quarto Productions, a theatre company specializing in performing modern theatre using Shakespearean staging techniques, will stage The Life and Death of Jack Straw, an anonymous play written in the early years of Shakespeares debut in the Elizabethan theatre scene. First printed in 1594, The Life and Death of Jack Straw explores the perils of progressive politics and weak leadership in an eerily modern world of families, both working class and royal, trying their best to survive in uncertain times.
Directed by Bad Quarto Productions Artistic Director Tony Tambasco, The Life and Death of Jack Straw is the story of parental love turned into a political crusade brought to life by Bad Quarto Productions signature style of combining modern text work with Shakespeares staging conditions. Our performance combines Elizabethan language with the liveliness of improv to deliver productions of Shakespearean plays as intensely raw as their original stagings.
