Quantum Theatre_Shakespeare's-Will-Web-Show-Title

November 8 – December 1, 2019

By Vern Theissen
Directed by Melanie Dreyer
Starring Sheila McKenna
Original music performed by Dawn Posey

William Shakespeare remained married until his death to a woman named Anne Hathaway, about whom the world knows little and wonders much. This contemporary play from the Canadian west considers Anne in intriguing complexity and expands its feminist exploration into our present. Quantum’s site – soon to be announced – references both Anne’s comfortable house in Stratford-Upon-Avon (hint: there’s a pun in the title) and the spaces of her poetic imagination. Shakespeare’s Will offers a tour de force for a wonderful actress and gorgeous original music played live by violinist Dawn Posey. And it will reveal a Pittsburgh treasure hiding in plain sight, enhanced by the mastery of designers Stephanie Mayer-Staley, Joe Seamans, C. Todd Brown, and Bonnie Siefers.
