Indianapolis Central Public Library in Clowes Auditorium


Many experts now believe that Shakespeare and another playwright wrote Arden of Fevershame at the very beginning of his career. It is one of the few Renaissance plays whose central character is a woman: the complex femme fatale Alice Arden. Professor Terri Bourus directs this Hoosier Bard production, following her internationally acclaimed stagings of Cardenio and Measure for Measure(s).

Arden is a rich and ruthless businessman. By lobbying his political friends, he has secured government concessions and monopolies, robbing ordinary people of their homes and incomes. Among his many enemies is his young, neglected and abused wife. In love with another man, Alice can’t divorce Arden, and murdering him is her only route to freedom. Plenty of other people are ready to help her dispose of Arden. Soon, professional killers join the widening conspiracy. But a man can be harder to kill than you might imagine. . . . and assassins can be surprisingly funny.

Arden will be staged at the Indianapolis Central Public Library in Clowes Auditorium – 40 East St. Clair Street
