Coming August 2019…

On August 1st 2019, Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival returns with Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, performed as a fully staged reading at the Marquette Regional History Center. Chekhov’s beloved and classic “slice of life” play proves the long-standing formula of comedy equaling tragedy plus time. Chock full of sumptuous characters portrayed by local favorites, our story studies the frustrating facets of bitter dissatisfaction, the ridiculousness of the human spirit and ultimately the inevitable and ironic satire of it all. That’s The Seagull- that’s life!

 

Coming October 2019…

In October 2019, Wolf’s Head howls back to the Ore Dock Brewing Company to take a bite out of the delectable, seductive horror cartoon of Quills by Doug Wright.  Sinfully sensational and eccentrically perverse, our tale immerses you into the middle of Charenton Insane Asylum circa 18th Century France- your bunk-mate? The infamous writer, the Marquis de Sade, imprisoned for the rest of his life for “unmentionable activities”. The triangular battle of wills between the Marquis and two physicians of differing treatment plans/opinions will leave you disturbed, sidesplitted, exhilarated and questioning.
