    Mrs. Shakespeare and Mrs. Behn

    Read the Offoffoff review

    The evening includes "Love Arm'd, Aphra Behn & Her Pen" written and performed by Karen Eterovich and "Mrs. Shakespeare: Will's First & Last Love" written and performed by Yvonne Hudson. In Mrs. Shakespeare, Ms. Hudson weaves sonnets, soliloquies, and songs, including characters from 18 of her husband's play, to intimately depict the Shakespeares' life together. On her husband's last birthday in 1616, Anne recalls the 23 years they spent apart, including those during which she raised Will's children and faced the challenges of a commuter marriage. Love Arm'd takes place in 1682, on Mrs. Behn's last night with her live-in lover. This dramatic rendering of Behn's life reconfigures her work into a dramatic confrontation, highlighting her conflicting emotions as she contends with bisexuality, faithlessness, and disease. In addition to adapting Behn's own words from some of her 17 plays, hundreds of poems and several novels, Ms. Eterovich uses passages from Shakespeare, Pierre de Ronsard and Giambattista Marino to highlight Aphra Behn's trilingualism.
