women-willTina Packer’s Women of Will focuses on something with which Packer is exceptionally well versed, William Shakespeare’s female characters. The show, which is directed by Eric Tucker, is written by Packer, the founding artistic director of Massachusetts’ Shakespeare & Company

Synopsis

Women of Will stars Tina Packer and Nigel Gore in a play about Shakespeare’s leading ladies. Well some are ladies but most, one finds, are not. Women of Will is described as “the masterful summation of Tina Packer’s 40-plus years spent investigating all things Shakespeare; it is an engrossing exploration of the Bard’s art and psyche through his female characters, and portrayed by two of Shakespeare’s greatest modern interpreters – Ms. Packer and Nigel Gore.”

The evening includes jests, jaunts and jousts with a variety of women, including Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, Viola in Twelfth Night and that dark woman from the Scottish Play. If you love Shakespeare, great acting and amazing language, then Women of Will is an excellent choice. Women of Will is being offered for a limited run.
