The off-Broadway production of Jane Anger or The Lamentable Comedie of JANE ANGER, that Cunning Woman, and also of Willy Shakefpeare and his Peasant Companion, Francis, Yes and Also of Anne Hathaway (also a Woman) Who Tried Very Hard, will stream for two weeks this month.
The play will stream from June 14-26, and tickets are on sale now.
Inspired by the little-known author of “Her Protection for Women” first published in 1589, this bold new anachronistic Jacobean feminist revenge comedy is directed by 2017 Lucille Lortel Award winner Jess Chayes (HOME/SICK, The Antelope Party), with a cast including playwright Monahon (How to Load a Musket, The Government Inspector), Michael Urie (Grand Horizons, Chicken & Biscuits, Torch Song, Buyer and Cellar), Ryan Spahn (Daniels Husband), and Amelia Workman (Fefu and her Friends).
It’s 1606 and William Shakespeare is stuck in quarantine with his unpaid apprentice, Francis. It would be a GREAT time to write King Lear… if he weren’t plagued with writer’s block. In through the window climbs JANE ANGER, the Cunning Woman, with a large sack and a mind to change history forever.
