Accessible Shakespeare Performances at Chicago Shakespeare Theater in Winter 2016/2017

Enjoy an Access Shakespeare Performance at Chicago Shakespeare Theater

King Charles III
with our “Pay-What-You-Can” Access Shakespeare Program

Charles. Camilla. William. Kate. Harry. One family holds the future of Great Britain in its hands. But what will it be? The Queen is dead. The “King-in-waiting” finally ascends the throne. Defying centuries of tradition, Charles boldly attempts to reassert the crown’s power, landing himself—and his country—in a royal mess. Celebrated British actor andDownton Abbey favorite Robert Bathurst takes on the title role in this provocative, insightful political drama. Much like Shakespeare’s captivating history plays, here the men and women of the world’s most famous royal family are revealed to be far more fascinating and complex than their tabloid depictions. After successful productions on London’s West End and Broadway, the 2015 Olivier Award winner for Best New Play makes its highly anticipated Chicago premiere.  Purchase your tickets in advance by calling 312.595.5600.

From the UK: Cheek By Jowl’s

The Winter’s Tale
Saturday, December 17 at 3:00 p.m.

with our “Pay-What-You-Can” Access Shakespeare Program

The award-winning British company Cheek by Jowl returns to Chicago with a new production of one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. Writing The Winter’s Tale after completing his great tragedies, this is a new Shakespeare. Unity of time, place and action are hurled aside as we move across Europe—from court to country, from high tragedy to low comedy—in a story that spans fourteen years. A delusional and paranoid king tears his family apart, but the struggle for redemption yields flickers of hope. Initial darkness gives way to joy as Time leads the characters to a shattering conclusion. Purchase your tickets in advance by calling 312.595.5600.
