By Thomas Heywood

“Oh God, Oh God! That it were possible to undo things done; to call back yesterday!”

The Shakespeare Project continues its exploration of Shakespeare’s contemporaries by presenting this rarely seen Jacobean middle-class tragedy by Thomas Heywood, who is believed to have written over two hundred plays. Considered by many to be Heywood’s masterpiece, the play tells the story of Anne Frankford, a newly married wife, her life-changing choice, and its devastating repercussions. Peter Garino directs.

Watch a brief video with the director and two actors, about the play.

A staged reading by professional actors from The Shakespeare Project of Chicago. An informative talk begins fifteen minutes before the performance, which is followed by a question-and-answer session with the director and cast. The Shakespeare Project was founded in 1996 and has performed at the Newberry Library since 2003.

Cosponsored by the Newberry Public Programs department.
