The Duke of Lycia plays a dangerous game when he outlaws the worship of the god of love. Cupid doesn't take kindly to the desecration of his temples, and by the time he's done taking revenge, the entire kingdom may not survive.
Written by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher, and first printed in 1615, Cupid's Revenge is a tale of love, revenge, and mortal folly that was highly influential to post-Shakespearean playwrights. Filled with music, dance, romance, sword fights, and gruesome deaths, Cupid's Revenge re-invents earlier Elizabethan tragedy for a new era.
Angelina LaBarre, a California based director and Shakespeare scholar will guest direct this lost classic of the English Renaissance this spring. Some of LaBarres most recent credits include Exit, Pursued By a Bear, The Laramie Project, Almost, Maine, and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged with Contra Costa College and The Merry Wives with Big Idea Theatre, and Julius Caesar with Darkroom Productions.
Cupid's Revenge will be staged using Bad Quarto Productions' signature style of combining universal lighting, audience interaction, cross-gendered casting, limited rehearsals, and other staging conditions of the original Shakespearean playing companies.
