The Rape of the Lock

In this theatricalization of his classic 18th Century mock-epic poem, Alexander Pope is portrayed as the crankiest playwright ever, as five actors alternately suffer under and subvert his tyrannical direction. Judith Shakespeare Company's signature "gender-reverse" casting comes into brilliant contact with rollicking rhymed couplets in this mischievous take on Pope's story of jealousy and seduction.
