The International Shakespeare Center (ISC) presented a sold out run of Ducdame Ensemble’s DAMES OF THRONES: THE WOMEN OF SHAKESPEARE’S HISTORIES, at Santa Fe’s Adobe Rose Theatre. DAMES OF THRONES was part of a month-long celebration of Shakespeare sparked by the New Mexico Museum of Art exhibit The First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Folger Shakespeare Library in D.C.
DAMES OF THRONES weaves together major life events and famous highlights from the perspective of the women in Shakespeare's History Plays. The show runs with no intermission, and was originally conceived and directed by Ariana Karp.
