Event:
  Shakespeare's Will

  Description:   Shakespeare’s Will November 8 - December 1 By Vern Thiessen Directed by Melanie Dreyer Starring Sheila McKenna Original music performed by Dawn Posey William Shakespeare remained married until his death to Anne Hathaway, about whom the world knows little and wonders much. This contemporary play imagines a full-throated Anne in every emotional color imaginable, at the center of her own story instead of relegated to a footnote in Will’s; a robust exploration of feminist themes resonant even in the #MeToo present. Shakespeare’s Will offers a tour de force for an actress, in this case Sheila McKenna, cherished staple of Pittsburgh theatre. It’s scored with original music played live by violinist Dawn Posey. The performance inhabits West Homestead United Methodist Church, a Pittsburgh treasure hiding in plain sight, unveiling the poetic space of her memory enhanced by the mastery of designers Stephanie Mayer-Staley, Joe Seamans, C. Todd Brown, Steve Shapiro, and Bonnie Siefers.
