zTCAH: Theatre Project to continue season with Shakespeare The Theatre Project will begin the second half of its 20th anniversary season Jan. 9 with a two-week run of "Shakespeare: Dreams of Power & Passion."
A new work by British actor Paul Alexander, "Shakespeare" presents "several of Shakespeare's best-known characters at moments of moral decision -- at the point when the drive for power or passion takes over," according to the theater. The play will run through Jan. 20.
Among other winter-spring highlights are "Honey Chil' Milk," a satire on stereotypes of black women, developed two years ago during Maryland Art Place's Diverse Works program, set for Feb. 6-24. Also, the theater has scheduled two more entries in its 1990-'91 New American Puppetry Series: "Home Family God Country Flag," described as "a journey through 20th century America," to be presented by New York's Ninth Street Theatre March 13-31; and "Invitations to Heaven," the Vermont-based Sandglass Theater's comic examination of a Jewish child's family heritage, April 17-28.
