Julius Ceasar <p>"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings..."<br />Directed by Anthony Powell<br />What makes a true leader?

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead <p>"Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else."<br />Directed by Timothy Orr<br />In this hilarious and mind-bending comedy by the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Shakespeare in Love, Hamlet is brilliantly retold through the eyes of two minor characters.
