April 6th The Shakespeare Theatre Company Presents “Malvolio’s Revenge: Mock Trial”. (Malvolio from Twelfth Night gets his day in court)

MALVOLIO'S REVENGE!
MALVOLIO’S REVENGE!

I just watched Twelfth Night over the Winter at the Blackfriars (ASC), and thought John Harrell did a fantastic job playing  Malvolio. Now’ during this play Malvolio (John) shouts out, “I’ll be revenged on the whole pack of you.” (act 5, scene 1.) Well’ It turns out, that indeed he will get a chance to be revenged on them… In court.  The Shakespeare Theatre Company is staging a mock trial where his grievances can be heard… Now here’s what cool, and why living in the DC area can have it’s advantages… Check out who the judges are for The Supreme Court of Ilyria (Ummm… Actual United States Supreme Court Justices) :

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, presiding
Justice Samuel Alito
Judge Paul R. Michel
Judge Rosemary M. Collyer
Judge Merrick B. Garland
Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh

I thought that was a pretty impressive lineup… The Tickets are $35–$50,
and Student Tickets: $20.  Jump the link for the rest of the details.
