Fifty Shades of Shakespeare

An orgy of hilarious, powerful, and revealing explorations of gender, sexuality, intimacy, kink, and relationships, all told through the bard's sexiest scenes… stripped down to 4 actors, 12 scenes and 23 roles. The only question is: How do you want it? Every night the audience picks which actor plays each role. Grab your BFF, your F*ck Buddy, your Bae, your Swipe Right, and prepare to get your drink on! 

FEBRUARY 7 - MARCH 2
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00pm
Must be 21+ to attend.

LOCATION: Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro — 3905 N Lincoln
