Unit Set/Multiple Settings

This mesmerizing Jacobean thriller, written a few years after Hamlet, is a searing examination of humankind's social need for justice and our animal desire for vengeance. Vindice, the "Revenger," sets off a chain reaction of havoc in a corrupt and decadent Venice, which exposes outrageous indulgences and government hypocrisy, and ends in a coup de théâtre massacre of epic proportions. Part black comedy, part social Satire/Political Satire, the play is a gleefully macabre plot-twisting blender full of Shakespeare's greatest hits.

"Highly entertaining…relevant populist entertainment." —Theatermania.com. "Heated, passionate, red-blooded…Unflagging energy and imagination, Gleeful!" —NYTheatre.com. "Jaw-dropping and eye-filling…Heart-pounding…Unforgettable." —BackStage.
