The Second Shepherds Play
Bad Quarto Productions, a theatre company specializing in performing modern theatre using Shakespearean staging techniques, will stage The Second Shepherds' Play, a medieval Christmas musical, this December 12th - 20th at 353 W. 48th St in New York. Just when life couldn't get any harder for three Shepherds, a devious pair of thieves steal one of their sheep and disguise it as their newborn. Confusion and comic high jinks ensue as the shepherds try to get their sheep back, and when they yield to the better angels of their natures, they're invited to witness a Christmas miracle.

About the Second Shepherds' Play, director Derek Peruo says "The Second Shepherds' Play is a classic tale of average people doing extraordinary things. It's a tale of forgiveness and grace that still holds true 500 years after it was first performed."
About Bad Quarto Productions:Bad Quarto Productions was founded in 2010 to explore the rarely performed plays of Shakespeare's time, and the ways in which Shakespeare's staging techniques can inform modern theatrical productions. The company has produced the earliest printed version of Romeo and Juliet; The Merry Devil of Edmonton; and The Ballad of Dido, an original musical developed using Shakespearean techniques. Bad Quarto's performance style has found favor with audiences wherever we've played, and we continue to look for new ways of bridging the gap between Shakespeare's theatre and our own.
