tyrant opens this month!


TYRANT, Dan Bray’s adaptation of a work by Thomas Middleton, opens soon! A musical study of resistance in a lurid dystopian future, the production explores what it means to stand up against tyranny. With original music by composer Garry Williams, this ensemble will drag you underground and invite you to examine the nature of resistance.
