“BALTHAZAR” by Debora Threedy in the Studio Theatre *

What if Portia’s appearance as a male lawyer in court wasn’t the first—or last—time she dressed in drag? // Portia is a noblewoman in 16th century Venice. She wants to be a lawyer, but that profession is reserved for men. Her cousin Bellario, a doctor of law, won’t teach her. Her husband Bassanio is in serious legal trouble … and he’s in love with his best friend Antonio. Things are not going well. What’s a girl to do? // 1. Create an alter ego (enter Balthazar). 2. Trick Bellario. 3. Represent Antonio (and Bassanio) in court. // This riff on Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” is a life-and- death journey through the law, love, and gender identity.

“BITTER LEMON” by Melissa Leilani Larson in the Studio Theatre *

What if Lady Macduff finally had her say beyond her 19 lines in The Scottish Play? // Finlay Macbeth has done Lady Helen Macduff a terrible wrong. Now they are trapped, alone together, in a purgatorial waiting room. // Sometimes the only escape is forgiving the unforgivable. // This riff on Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” is a life-after-death journey through the strange, the empty, and everything in-between.
