Alice Arden has a problem. She’s fallen hard for a handsome fellow with a promising future. But he’s not her husband. What’s an early modern woman to do? When “Love is a god, and marriage is but words,” there’s only one answer—hire some hit men, of course! Resurgens Theatre Company returns to the Shakespeare Tavern this November with the earliest “true crime” drama to appear on the English stage, Arden of Faversham. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, our “original practices” production will not only provide Atlanta audiences with their first opportunity to experience this pioneering work of Elizabethan domestic tragedy, but also their first chance to hear Shakespeare’s beginnings as a collaborative playwright and theatre practitioner.

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


April 9, 10, and 11 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.
