The Play

For the first time in more than twenty years, Artistic Director Barbara Gaines revisits one of the great masterworks of Western literature. A leading interpreter of Shakespeare—known internationally for her populist and dynamic interpretations—Gaines has staged more than fifty productions at Chicago Shakespeare, garnering the prestigious Honorary OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) and multiple Joseph Jefferson Awards for Best Production and for Best Director. This essential Shakespeare escapes the boundaries of a simple revenge story to explore the question of what it means to be human.
