Co-Artistic director of Fault Line Theatre, Craig Wesley Divino (pictured second from the right), has been down in Memphis, TN for the last few weeks gearing up for a production of Shakespeare’s earliest plays Richard III with the Tennessee Shakespeare Company. Though we miss Craig in New York, we’re thrilled to hear about this exciting production that looks to be a perfect fit for this Halloweekend. If you find yourself in Tennessee, here’s some more info:

A LITTLE ABOUT THE PLAY
TSC’s production of William Shakespeare’s early Morality Play raises history from the dead to put the notorious King Richard III on trial before you and the spirit world.
Unearthed from a buried Friary just two years ago in Leicester, England, the painfully deformed 1485 skeleton of Richard now is brought to frightening life in a cadaver synod during which his murderous actions to the throne are reconsidered during the reverence of All Hallow’s Eve. A soul still wandering between this life and the next, history’s notorious “bottled spider” has much more he would like for you to consider before passing final judgment on his actions that gained him the throne but have haunted him ever since.
