The Resurgens Theatre Company


To launch our Atlanta to Austin Tour RESURGENS THEATRE COMPANY presents a special remount of Ben Jonson's Volpone


One Night Only March 19, 2018 at 7:30pm


As the first stop in our Gulf Coast spring tour, Resurgens Theatre Company is pleased to bring our highly popular Volpone back to the Shakespeare Tavern this March. Delight with us in the duplicitous schemes of a master con artist and his cunning parasite (Volpone, the Fox and Mosca, the Fly), as they expose and exploit the ravenous cravings of a corrupt society. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, this “original practices” production focuses sharply on the biting satire and multifaceted irony that makes Jonson’s play famous, underscoring Samuel Pepys’ oft-repeated claim that it is “a most excellent play; the best I think I ever saw.”

Continuing our season of domestic tragedies RESURGENS THEATRE COMPANY presents
Thomas Heywood’s
A Woman Killed with Kindness


April 9, 10, and 11, 2018 at 7:30 pm
with a special late night performance on April 13 at 11:00 pm
at The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse

Newly married John and Anne Frankford seem to have it all—nice house, devoted servants, and plenty of cash. But what happens when an amorous acquaintance enters their home? Sir Charles and Sir Francis appear to be the best of friends. But what occurs when blood and money come between them and their loved ones? After a fall from grace, is it “possible / To undo things done, to call back yesterday”? Such are the ordinary ills faced by the everyday inhabitants of Thomas Heywood’s A Woman Killed with Kindness. “Look for no glorious state,” as Resurgens Theatre Company returns to the Shakespeare Tavern this April with “country measures” and the music of “heartstrings made [from] melancholy wood.” Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, our “original practices” production fully invests in the colloquial rhythms and rustic cadences that make Heywood’s play not only a masterpiece of early modern domestic tragedy, but also a precursor of twentieth-century poetic naturalism.
