Born With Teeth


STARTS SEP 1, 2023

By Liz Duffy Adams

Directed by Josh Costello


September 1-October 1

Intimate. Ingenious. Intoxicating.

Will Shakespeare is an upstart crow looking to make his name. Kit Marlowe is the greatest poet of the age and knows it. He's also a spy for the English crown. In the back room of a tavern, against the backdrop of a polarized and paranoid England where even the slightest misstep can lead to a death sentence, the two writers embark on a risky collaboration. Artistic partnership becomes a dangerous dance of inspiration, artistry, seduction, and possible betrayal. Experience the thrill of creative expression and the precariousness of living in a society where every move is scrutinized.

“Glorious… [a] jewel of a script!”

-Houston Chronicle
