Something wicked this way comes
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Patrick Mulcahy
JULY 17 - AUGUST 3 | MAIN STAGE
Visions of power captivate and corrode as the star couple craft their dark fantasies into crimson reality. PSF Producing Artistic Director Patrick Mulcahy returns to the director's chair following his triumphant production of Hamlet in 2011. Shakespeare's penetrating and glorious language lays bare our human frailty in a scorching personal and political nightmare made real.
