Alley Theatre presents Born with Teeth
An aging authoritarian ruler, a violent police state, a restless polarized people seething with paranoia: it’s a dangerous time for poets. Two of them - the great Kit Marlowe and the up-and-comer Will Shakespeare - meet in the back room of a pub to collaborate on a history play cycle, navigate the perils of art under a totalitarian regime, and flirt like young men with everything to lose. One of them may well be the death of the other.
The play was originally developed in the Alley All New Reading Series. The June 18-25 performances will coincide with the 2022 Alley All New Festival.
