“In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.”
Oscar Wilde’s most perfect of plays is a comedy of class, courtship, and avoiding burdensome social conventions. Director of many STC hits, Keith Baxter (An Ideal Husband, Mrs. Warren's Profession, The Imaginary Invalid) returns to direct this trivial comedy for serious people.
Playing in repertory with Henry IV, Part 2
“The better part of valor is, discretion.”
A young prince must decide between tavern roughhousing and the burden of his father’s legacy, in the coming-of-age story of heroism, corruption and war. STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs the masterful Stacy Keach (King Lear, Macbeth) who plays Shakespeare’s beloved character, Falstaff.
Playing in repertory with Henry IV, Part 1
“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.”
Continuing from Henry IV Part 1, Young Price Hal seeks to prove to his father, King Henry IV (Edward Gero), that he’s ready to the throne by leaving his lowlife behavior behind him. The King’s sudden illness and a bloody war forces Hal into action.
“It's a pity you didn't have a little more brandy. It might have made you more agreeable!”
Noël Coward’s fast-talking, manners-breaking comedy makes its STC debut to finish a stellar season. Maria Aitken (STC ‘s 2009 hit, As You Like It) directs this witty and irreverent play about the people we cannot live with or without.
