This will be the sixth LTO play directed by Jeffrey Jackson. Jackson raves about the set for this production. The date of the play has been moved up to sometime in the 1920s. One of the challenges of directing this play is the lack of stage directions. Shakespeare simply states when an actor exits and when one enters the scene. It's up to the director to connect the dots from the dialogue to coordinate when and how the entrances and exits are made.
