ReDiscovery: Hair of the Dog

In the Lansburgh Theatre


How did Christopher Marlowe die? And how did Shakespeare become Shakespeare? In this world premiere by acclaimed author Constance Congdon (2011–2012’s The Servant of Two Masters), Shakespeare sets out to solve the mystery. Written in bombastic, sometimes rhyming blank verse, drawing on Revenge Tragedy conventions as well as Elizabethan historical records, Congdon’s play explores the conundrums of history, literary inspiration, and coming to terms with the permanence of death.
