Into the Breeches!
by George Brant

The theatre has sat dark and empty since the Oberon Playhouse's director and company of male actors left to fight in WWII. Determined that the show must go on, the director's wife and an unexpected troupe of players assemble to bring an all-female version of Shakespeare's
Henriad to life. Into the Breeches! is a hilarious and moving celebration of collaboration, female fortitude, friendship, and the healing power of theatre. "Once more into the breech, dear friends!"
