About this show

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley presents the Northern California premiere of Archduke. Written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph, Archduke explores how one man, one moment, can derail an entire century. Focusing on the cataclysmic 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, three hapless insurgents embark on a darkly comic quest for immortality, unaware that their actions will launch World War I. A hit at TheatreWorks's 2016 New Works Festival, Archduke's world premiere at the Mark Taper Forum was called "first rate! An ambitious mix of comedy, tragedy, and history" by the Los Angeles Times.
