The 2018/19 season begins in October with Shakespeare’s historical tragedy of King John, featuring Holly Twyford (Mary Stuart) as Constance, mother of Arthur. Directed by Aaron Posner (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew), this will be the first staging of the turbulent reign of Shakespeare’s earliest king in Folger Theatre’s production history.
In January 2019, the Folger presents Jessica Swale’s hit play Nell Gwynn, detailing the rise of a humble orange-seller to the heights of celebrity in Restoration London. This flirtatious backstage comedy, hailed as “an absolute treat” (The Times), is sure to win audiences over with its great wit, comedy, and music.
