Last Weekend: King John at the Folger

This is your last weekend to catch King John at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre. Brought to life under the creative eye of Aaron Posner, King John is a play that is rarely staged– possibly partly due to its complex and multilayered staging logistics. The Folger, always rising to the challenges thanks to a talented team, surmounts the production confusion and brings a nuanced cacophony with a purpose to this staging of King John. We liked especially DC Metro Theatre Arts’ review of the play: It does a great job of breaking down the complexities of the staging and focuses on the incredible creativity involved in bringing this little-known gem to life.

King John will be performed for the last time on Sunday, December 2; however, you can catch a free lecture before Friday’s show, titled “King John on Stage and Screen.” To buy tickets or get more information, you can visit https://www.folger.edu/events/free-folger-friday-king-john-on-stage-and-screen.
