Into the Breeches
by: George Brant
It’s 1942 and the Oberon playhouse had scheduled a production of Shakespeare’s “Henry” plays. The problem? Most of the men of the company have left to fight overseas. In a reversal of Shakespearean times (when men played all the female roles) the women of the company decide they will play all the male roles. This warm and funny play focuses not on Shakespeare or his plays, but on the WWII women who carried on, accepted others, made friends and created a community. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration, creativity and persistence when the show must go on.
