Spring Rep. 2012

The Bacchae by Euripides
Directed by Steven Scott Mazzola

The Tooth of Crime by Sam Shepard
Directed by Kathleen Akerley

We close the season with another rep, leading off with The Bacchae of Euripides (it’s been too long since we produced one of the great Greek plays) as we welcome back director Steven Scott Mazzola, who brought our productions of The Royal Hunt of the Sun and In the Summer House to the stage.

The Bacchae will be paired with The Tooth of Crime, a play from the neglected, but compelling, early work of Sam Shepard, and one of the plays that sealed his reputation as a strikingly original and influential voice in American theatre. Frequent WSC actor and director Kathleen Akerley (whose work for us off-stage includes our productions of Macbett and Jumpers), the artistic director of Longacre Lea Productions, will direct our production.
