The Comedy of Errors
by William Shakespeare

May 27- June 14, 2020
A rollicking and farcical tale of mistaken identity, family separation, and love—this early Shakespearean comedy relishes in wordplay and slapstick while exploring the eternal question of nature versus nurture. 

The Oresteia
by Ellen McLaughlin
west coast premiere
July 8-26, 2020

Freely adapted from the Ancient Greek plays of Aeschylus comes this chronicle of Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, and their children—Iphigenia, Electra, and Orestes—and the tragic tale of the fall of the House of Atreus. Called “heart-stopping” by The Washington Post, this is a story of family, war, power, and sacrifice, and our collective responsibility to disrupt the tragedies amongst us with mercy, compassion, and grace.

1001 Nights (a Retelling) 
by Leila Buck and Evren Odcikin
world premiere
August 19-September 6, 2020
Following in the footsteps of black odyssey and Quixote Nuevo1001 Nights (A Retelling) is being developed as part of Cal Shakes’ New Classics initiative in deep collaboration with Bay Area communities. Inspired by the Middle Eastern folk tales of One Thousand and One Nights told by Shahrazad to save a kingdom and all the women in it, this “retelling” is a mix of ancient and contemporary reflections celebrating the resilience of MENASA (Middle Eastern, North African, South Asian) women in our society—one that often resists nuance, complexity and contradiction.

Shakespeare’s most iconic tale of young, ill-fated love presented in a bilingual adaptation by Karen Zacarías. Imagine these star-crossed lovers in a world steeped in the music and mores of Latinidad.
