Imagine sitting in the audience of a lackluster theater production. Now imagine climbing onstage in the midst of the action and re-directing the play to suit your fancies. This scenario is precisely how this comical play-within-a-play begins. Brash couple George and Nell overtake the production, insert their own characters, and frequently interrupt the narrative. Staged on the 400th anniversary of its theatrical debut, the play's metafictional turns continue to feel contemporary.
