Public Shakespeare Presents:
TYRANT

Newman Theater

Tuesday, October 2 at 8pm

Public Shakespeare Initiative

As an aging, tenacious Elizabeth I clung to power, William Shakespeare probed the social causes, the psychological roots, and the twisted consequences of tyranny. With uncanny insight, his plays shine a spotlight on the infantile psychology and unquenchable narcissism of demagogues—as well as the cynicism and opportunism of the various enablers and hangers-on who surround them. Incisive commentary from Stephen Greenblatt (Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics), combined with readings from Henry VI, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, and Richard III, will illuminate the ways in which Shakespeare exposes and explores the lust for absolute power and the catastrophic consequences of its execution.
