Stylish and Decadent Tragi-comedy on stage
Warren Wilson Theatre presents Women Beware Women by Thomas Middleton at Kittredge Theatre Thursday-Sunday, Feb. 17-20, at 8 p.m. Written almost 400 years ago and adapted by Jesse Berger, Women Beware Women strikes a modern chord. A revenge tragedy with a surprising amount of comedy, The New York Times has called it, “exuberant” and “cutthroat.” Director Graham Paul says, “Warren Wilson Theatre is committed to performing classic masterpieces (as well as risky contemporary theatre), committed to producing theatre that is both excellent and challenging, and committed to taking chances with provocative plays that are not frequently seen. Women Beware Women stands out in all three categories.” Tickets are free for all area students, $5 for seniors, alumni and staff and $10 general admission. Info: 828.771.3040 or email@example.com.
