Created by Penelope Parsons-Lord
Based on the works of William Shakespeare
“Through some of Shakespeare’s most famous works, and unsettling renditions of old songs, we confront and grapple with the psyches that populate the nexus of passion, violence, humour and play.”
– Sydney Fringe Festival
In Violent Delights, we explore Shakespeare’s obsession with the worst of human behavior as it lives side-by-side with love and passion. Eight actors take audiences on a journey through pleasure, pain, sexuality, and violence using some of the Bard’s most well-known works. At turns comic and sinister, tragic and raucous, Violent Delights is bloody good fun.
Violent Delights will be performed throughout the Twin Cities as pop-up performances between October 18 – November 2.
All performances are Pay-What-You-Can!
