Join Shakespeare scholar Regina Buccola to examine the works of playwrights Thomas Middleton & Thomas Dekker who collaborated on a series of pamphlets when the plague closed London theaters in 1603.

London, 1603.  The plague.  Playwrights Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker, out of work due to the theatre closings, wrote separately and then collaboratively on what they saw and lived.  Their "Plague Pamphlets" have been adapted by Regina Buccola and orchestrated for three actors by Peter Garino who give eyewitness accounts of the devastating time, unfortunately, now familiar to all of us.  Narrated by Regina Buccola, who is joined by actors Gary Houston, Daniel Millhouse and Grace Smith.

A discussion with the creative team will follow each performance.

This program is funded by the Friends of the Wilmette Public Library.
