Rahaleh Nassri, who has acted in WSC productions including Caligula and Titus Andronicus, will provide a new adaptation and will direct. Nassri’s productions have achieved much success at other theatres in town, including The Studio Theatre 2ndStage and Rorschach Theatre.

The Bacchae will be paired with The Tooth of Crime, a play from the neglected, but compelling, early work of Sam Shepard, and one of the plays that sealed his reputation as a strikingly original and influential voice in American theatre. Frequent WSC actor and director Kathleen Akerley (whose work for us off-stage includes our productions of Macbett and Jumpers), the artistic director of Longacre Lea Productions, will direct our production. ----------------------------- A resident company at Artisphere, WSC Avant Bard ) is a performing arts organization dedicated to producing primarily classic works, both time-tested and contemporary classics; emphasizing a provocative, bold approach in an intimate setting; and training and showcasing the best emerging talent in the region, mentored by seasoned, professional theatre artists.
