Fifty Shades of Shakespeare Returns To Mary’s Attic

Back by popular demand, (re)discover theatre presents Fifty Shades of Shakespeare, now in its fourth year! An orgy of hilarious, powerful, and revealing explorations of gender roles, sexuality, kink, and relationships, all told through the bard’s sexiest scenes… stripped down to 4 actors, 12 scenes and 23 roles. The only question is: How do you want it? Every night the audience picks which actor plays each role. The possibilities are endless and every show is a salacious surprise. Grab your BFF, your F*ck Buddy, your Bae, your Swipe Right, and prepare to get your drink on.
