Furman University Theatre will present Twisted Tales from Shakespeare Feb. 14-17 and Feb. 22-24 at 8 p.m., with matinee performances Feb. 18 and Feb. 25 at 3 p.m. All performances take place in The Playhouse on the Furman campus. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students.
Based on the same-titled 1957 book by Richard Armour, Twisted Tales From Shakespeare is adapted for stage and directed by Furman theatre professor Rhett Bryson.
Bryson’s stage adaptation of Armour’s book explores the early days of Shakespeare’s history, the true authorship of Shakespeare’s plays, and the Globe Playhouse. The performance interprets two of Shakespeare’s most famous plays: Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
