    Hamlet and Twelfth Night

    Desire, grief, and madness intertwine in two of the Shakespeare's most beloved texts!

    Salt and Sage Productions is embarking on an epic journey this summer with twin productions of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and Hamlet. Desire, grief, and madness intertwine and intersect as one cast explores both texts under the direction of Salt and Sage co-founder and artistic director, Asae Dean. Performances are Thursday through Sunday July 14th through August 13th at Shaking the Tree. 

    Why Shakespeare?  Why Hamlet and Twelfth Night? Why Repertory?

    Because right now we need beauty. Because we need to grieve and we need to laugh. Shakespeare's plays are a symphony of the soul and Hamlet and Twelfth Night are two of the master works. Viewed together these compositions are even more beautiful than they are in isolation. Repertory provides audiences a chance to experience the interplay between tragedy and comedy and transforms a cast into a company.
