EDWARD II
Once he makes it public, King Edward's affair will defy the law, ignite his nobles, and leave a wake of destruction in its path. But what is he willing to sacrifice for love and principle? -Contains Adult Content-

The Comedy of Errors
Two sets of twins, separated at birth, stumble back into each other's lives in the midst of two cities at odds with each other.  Mistaken identity, slapstick humor, and wild coincidences run rampant in Shakespeare's classic farce.

Once Upon a Shakespearean Tale: What if William Shakespeare had written children’s stories? Three fairy tales from around the world combined with some of the Bard’s finest plays create a
fun collection of clever cautionary tales, original fables, and remastered nursery rhymes for the little big kid in all of us!
