DePauw Theatre: The Herbal Bed
"The Herbal Bed" is based on actual events, which occurred in Stratford-upon-Avon in the summer of 1613, when William Shakespeare's elder daughter, Susanna Hall, was publicly accused of having a sexual liaison with a married neighbor and family friend. "The New York Times" writes, " Mr. Whelan is a speculative playwright with a keen sense of history." London's The Daily Telegraph states, "Every character comes to life and, although he doesn't appear, Shakespeare is a powerful presence He (Whelan) writes beautifully"
Everyone is welcome to attend an opening-night reception following the Thursday performance and talk-back Friday night.
This production is recommended for mature audiences.
