The World’s Stage Theatre Company presents

“Desire is Death ~ Sonnet 147”

An exploration of love and loss through the language of William Shakespeare.

Love makes people do crazy things – from soliloquizing on balconies, to dressing in disguise as the opposite gender, to literally smothering the object of one’s affection! Inspired by the broad spectrum of themes present throughout the canon, “Desire is Death” is an exploration of love through the language of Shakespeare.

Featuring 11 sonnets, 10 scenes, and just as many actors, “Desire is Death ~ Sonnet 147” will transform the gorgeous Villa Terrace to take you on a journey through the complicated experience of human relationships.
