"At its core is a king, a leader, a fallible man: King Arthur, who is trying to make the world a better place through logic and compassion, and he doesn’t always win. But his endeavor to do so is honest and genuine. I think that’s really why it’s universal."

Alexandra Silber talks about playing Guenevere in our upcoming production of CAMELOT, publishing her second book, and her love of Angela Lansbury.

Before the star-crossed lovers of ROMEO & JULIET meet at the Capulets’ soiree, they are more or less typical teenagers. We get to hear all about lovesick Romeo’s infatuation with the mysterious Rosaline. But what is Juliet thinking about as she's on the verge of being married off to Paris?

We've created a text adventure game based on George Orwell’s 1984!

Report for your shift at the Ministry of Truth where you’ll spend your workday rectifying “misprints” in newspaper articles to properly reflect the Party’s ever changing version of history and language. But be careful, Big Brother is always watching.
