Immortal Longings: An Argument Erupts Among Shakespeare's Greatest Women
By Joseph McGrath
Directed by Kathleen Welker
What would happen if one of Shakespeare’s most famous women departed from her script? In Immortal Longings, Juliet decides she wants to live, and nine other leading ladies take sides. Must Juliet follow her destiny as set out for her by The Bard, or should she be allowed to choose her own ending? Join audiences at the Vortex as Viola, Rosalind, Portia, Kate, Desdemona, Lady Macbeth, Beatrice, Cleopatra, and Ophelia present arguments from their own plays. There is love, comedy, murder, disguises, suicide, and even a sword fight! Join us for the New Mexico premier of Immortal Longings!
April 29-May 22, 2016. Fri-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm. Tickets $22.
