Riverfront Theatre Company's Senior Ensemble Presents Outrageous Fortune, a Shakespeare-inspired comedy in which Shakespeare's tragic characters are taking part in a group therapy to remedy the wrongs perpetrated on them in their own plays.
Laugh along as rebellion bursts out between the cast members of Hamlet, King Lear, Richard III, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, and the Tempest. The characters wrestle with one another (sometimes literally!) and with their own actions in the play, trying to place the blame on their Fatal Flaws - who are personified in this zany bunch of drama kings and queens!
Some of them even get the idea that they might be able to avoid their fates by changing their stories. Can they alter their destinies? Should they? What happens when they confront their Fatal Flaws, and the villains who have acted against them?
Join us to find out!
"A wonderful introduction to Shakespeare for young audiences, and a hilarious re-visitation of familiar plays for lifelong lovers of the Bard!"
