News From Gravesend: The Wonderful Year 

London, 1603.  The plague.  Playwrights Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker, out of work due to the theatre closings, wrote separately and then collaboratively on what they saw and lived.  Their "Plague Pamphlets" have been adapted by Regina Buccola and orchestrated for three actors by Peter Garino who give eyewitness accounts of the devastating time, unfortunately, now familiar to all of us.  Narrated by Regina Buccola, who is joined by actors Gary Houston, Daniel Millhouse and Grace Smith.

Mark your calendar now for the second installment of The Shakespeare Project of Chicago's Virtual Enrichment Season.  "News From Gravesend: The Wonderful Year" will stream via Zoom on January 15, 20, 21, 23, 2021 from four of our library venues.   A discussion with the creative team will follow each performance.
