New York Shakespeare Exchange presents ISLAND; OR, TO BE OR NOT TO BE, written by Kevin Brewer and directed by Ross Williams.
A ferocious tempest brings a pair of shipwrecked young women to a bewildering kingdom brimming with star-crossed lovers, bumbling constables, an exiled king, an usurping brother, sinister witches, daring duels, potent poison and merciless murder. The girls’ arrival creates a chaos that threatens to change the island and all its inhabitants forever… In the spirit of Shakespeare’s fanciful comedies, Kevin Brewer creates an enchanting ISLAND where reality is relative and comedy reigns supreme.
ISLAND; OR, TO BE OR NOT TO BE marks the third full production for New York Shakespeare Exchange. ISLAND; OR, TO BE OR NOT TO BE plays The Connelly Theater (220 East 4th Street between Avenues A & B).
