             Portland Actors Ensemble
             directed by Elizabeth Huffman

"Describing the play as a culture clashing, political love story, director Elizabeth Huffman draws on her Arabic roots, her lifelong fascination with Roman history and an avid interest in today’s multicultural landscape to examine Shakespeare’s most complex adult love story.

For this production she weaves together elements of three periods of time: the ancient world of the play, the Shakespearean world that it was written in, and the modern world that we live in now to illuminate the themes and questions embedded in the play: What happens when two powerful rulers from vastly different cultures, ideologies and political agendas dare to fall in love? Is it romantic destiny or political suicide? Have we changed the way we deal with that question today?
Featuring live Arabic and contemporary music, an outstanding international cast, a mystical Soothsayer, additional text from Kahil Gibran and John Dryden’s play All for Love, combined with a stellar design team and a beautiful evening setting in the park, we are excited to share this unique production with you."
