Will on the Hill


Read the digital program:

Washington’s favorite congressional performers are returning to the screen this June with a witty script that skewers the federal capital’s unique political milieu!

This joyous and bipartisan evening of the Bard’s best take on power and politics raises money to support the theatre’s arts education and engagement programs, which reach students and community members at home, at school, online, and in our theatres.

This year’s witty script, Will on the Hill and Far Away—written by playwright, director, and actor Nat Cassidy (Any Day Now, Old Familiar Faces) and directed by STC’s Senior Director of Engagement and Education Samantha Wyer Bello—follows a definitely-not-mad scientist who crashes a Congressional hearing held to determine once and for all what’s so great about the works of the Bard. In this silly scenario harkening back to old sci-fi classics, a hapless handful of politicians are transported directly into the world of Shakespeare’s plays when a time machine backfires.

The performance will be available for viewing on a Pay-What-You-Will basis, allowing audiences nationwide to take part in the fun.
