Next in the Furman Theatre line up is, Love’s Fine Wit, an evening of sonnets, directed by Jay Oney.
When a plague outbreak forced the closing of London theatres in the mid-1590s, Shakespeare responded by writing his most famous sonnets. Taking our cue from the Bard, Furman Theatre Arts offers a selection of sonnets for our final show of 2020-2021.
In addition to Shakespeare, “Love’s Fine Wit” features sonnets by John Clare, Robert Browning, John Donne, Percy Bysshe Shelly, John Keats, Sylvia Plath, Richard Wilbur, Emily Dickinson, Billy Collins, John Gillespie Magee, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Conrad Aiken, Mary Elizabeth Frye, Marilyn Nelson, Emma Lazarus, and Maya Angelou.
