Lear
by William Shakespeare

June  7– Sept. 28, Main Stage

Welcome to a bold, new “Lear” for the 21st century.  Actress Ellen Geer assumes the title role as aging Queen Lear who divides her kingdom to test the loyalty of her three loving sons.  With its daring reversal of genders, Theatricum’s “Lear” is an insightful meditation on power, love, aging, and the role of men and women in society.


A Midsummer Night's Dream
by William Shakespeare

June 8 – Sept. 27, Main Stage

The beauty of Topanga’s countryside takes on a new dimension as fairies and mortals alike are beguiled by midsummer passions and puckish potions!  In this signature Theatricum production, Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy pits mischievous sprites against heartsick humans for a night of revelry, chaos, love and comedy.



All's Well That Ends Well
by William Shakespeare

June 21 – Sept. 27, Main Stage

She loves him.  He doesn’t know she’s alive.  It’s one of Shakespeare’s great romances, a wild journey of risks, magic, war, love and betrayal. A king is escapes death. A heroine chooses a husband.  An unwilling groom flees to foreign wars.  A wife won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.  With a Theatricum twist, our color-blind casting sheds new light on cultural diversity, race and class. 




Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare

July 12 – Sept. 28, Main Stage

It’s the original battle-of-the-sexes couple:  Benedick, the confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, the maid with a razor-sharp tongue.  But while these two joust with some of the best lines ever written, young Hero and Claudio rush headlong to the altar.  Will the malicious Don John’s conspiracy to sabotage the lovers’ wedding succeed?  With witty wordplay, passionate poetry and clever plot twists, this is the perfect romantic interlude under Topanga skies! 




Equivocation
Sept. 5-Oct. 4
by Bill Cain

Winner, 2010 Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award

Only 6 Performances! Sept. 5 – Oct. 4, Main Stage!

It’s 1605 and “Shagspere”, a London playwright, accepts a royal commission: write a play promoting the government's version of The Gunpowder Plot, a failed attempt to blow up Parliament. But can Shag write the real truth without losing his head? Bill Cain’s explosive comedy is also a high-stakes political thriller that deftly reveals the art of speaking truth to power.
