See what the critics are saying:

"The artists who make up the New York-based theater company Bedlam knew what they were doing when they paired up Shaw's and Shakespeare's plays."—Celia Wren, The Washington Post

"The minimalist approach [to Hamlet], from bare walls to a highly concentrated core of performers, allows the audience to see Shakespeare's characters in their rawest form."—Amanda Gunther, DC Metro Theater Arts

SAINT JOAN:

Considered by many to be Shaw’s greatest play, Saint Joan played a major role in Shaw being awarded the 1925 Nobel Prize. Joan of Arc was canonized by the Catholic Church in 1920 — over four centuries after her death. Shaw’s great play opened just three years later!In this stripped down, boldly theatrical, critically acclaimed new production by one of America’s most innovative theatre companies, we meet the Joan of Arc that Shaw believed in: not a saint, a witch, or a madwoman, but a French farm girl who is anything but simple — an illiterate intellectual, a true genius whose focus on the individual rocked the Church and State to their core.
(Recommended for ages 13 and up)

HAMLET

Prince Hamlet is depressed. Having been summoned home to Denmark to attend his father’s funeral, he is shocked to find his mother already remarried — to his father’s brother, Claudius. Worse still, Claudius has had himself crowned King despite the fact that Hamlet is heir to the throne. No wonder Hamlet suspects foul play. BEDLAM brings their unique performance style to Shakespeare’s greatest play — arguably the greatest play in the English language.
