A Virginia Company: Historical Plays in Repertory

TheaterCNU celebrates the quadricentennial of 1619 with one cast of actors performing two uniquely Virginian stories. "The Widow Ranter" by Aphra Behn, the first professional female playwright, tragicomically recounts Bacon’s Rebellion of 1676. Here colonists defy loyalists and love clashes with patriotism. On opposing performance dates, see "The Candidates" by Robert Munford, America's first comic playwright. This 1770s slapstick farce revolves around the politics and corruption of a typical Virginia election.  Directed by Laura Grace Godwin and Ann Mazzocca.
