For the first time in its 25-year history, the ensemble will take on the writing of William Shakespeare. With athletic theatricality and Marx-Brothers-inspired slapstick, the ERS ensemble brings exciting new life to this story of impossible moral choices in 17th-century Vienna. Radical experiments with speed set the play’s combination of the comically absurd and the tragically serious in stark relief, and deliver a remarkable new show that marries the company’s unique performance style with the Bard’s exquisitely lyrical language.

Advance tickets will be available to members of ERS’s patron groups beginning June 29, well in advance of the general public. Secure your early access to this production and other ERS shows with a contribution at a patron level today. Learn more here.
