Island Shakespeare Festival presents Shakespeare’s Other Women: A New Anthology of Monologues

ISF is excited to announce our first indoors winter production, Shakespeare’s Other Women: A New Anthology of Monologues, by Scott Kaiser, directed by Erin Murray.

ISF has become a favorite summer attraction, located on beautiful Whidbey Island and producing three classic productions in rotating repertory every summer.  In January 2018, ISF will expand its horizon into winter programming with the professional premiere of Scott Kaiser’s new play, giving voice to text Shakespeare might have written had he provided more for his female characters to speak.

This timely story weaves together an anthology of 36 new monologues, written in iambic pentameter, in Shakespeare’s vernacular, set in the historical moment upon the completion of Shakespeare’s First Folio of collected works.  Shakespeare’s Other Women explores the female experience that exists beneath the surface of Shakespeare’s works, acknowledging the repression of female voices throughout history.

Shakespeare’s Other Women runs Thursday-Sunday, January 18-28, at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts’ Zech Hall in Langley, WA.  Thursdays are Pay-What-You-Will; Friday-Sunday tickets are $15.  Tickets available through Brown Paper Tickets, with a link on the homepage of
