Following their success with Shakespeare past (A Commedia Romeo and Juliet, Hamlecchino, Titus Andronicus and The Merchant of Venice), Faction opens its 10th Anniversary Season with its first attack at one of the bard's "History" plays!

Armed only with their masks, their wits, and the words, six actors will do battle with one of Shakespeare’s most theatrical plays. With a little Commedia magic, they’ll bring over 50 characters to life in a flurry of kings, clowns, battles, Frenchmen, and leafy green vegetables!
