Studio 58

By William Shakespeare

November 17 – December 4, 2016

Directed by Kevin Bennett
Set Design by Shizuka Kai
Costumes Design by Christopher David Gauthier
Sound Composition & Design by Benjamin Elliott
Choreography by Lisa Goebel
Lighting Design by Darren Boquist

Lechery, lechery, still wars and lechery; nothing else holds fashion! – Thersites in Troilus & Cressida

Shakespeare’s most experimental drama receives a modern spin in Kevin Bennett’s interpretation of this part love story, part war drama where passion and violence are inextricably linked. With the Trojan War raging, Shakespeare shows us a world in which lovers yearn to be true and warriors strive to be brave, but both inevitably fail, betrayed by human nature and time.
