Sharp Weapons in a Madman's Hands


Vincent Carlson-Brown, Artistic Director of Nebraska Shakespeare, presents a lecture and discussion on his master's thesis A War of Roses: A Reconstruction of Shakespeare, featuring performances by actors from the original production. Vincent adapted Shakespeare's trilogy, wrote original text for each script, acted as artistic producer, directed all stage combat, and performed roles in both shows. So mark your calendars and join us for an inside look into his process and evocative final productions.

"I fear me you but warm the starvéd snake, 
Who, cherished in your breast, will sting your hearts.
You put sharp weapons in a madman's hands."
A War of Roses, adapted from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth
