‘The Two Noble Kinsmen’

Each year, Santa Cruz Shakespeare continues the tradition of showcasing the season’s intern acting company with its celebratory Fringe production. This year’s effort, The Two Noble Kinsmen, is a world premiere adaptation of what is believed to be Shakespeare’s last play, and a possible collaboration with Jacobean tragedian John Fletcher. The Two Noble Kinsmen is directed by Dash Waterbury and features an all-intern cast and crew. The play tells the story of two best friends who fall in love with the same woman, exposing the adventures and absurdity of love at first sight. How drama-tic.
