The MIT Shakespeare Ensemble presents Stage Beauty. See a free movie with popcorn on Saturday, October 4th at 8PM at the Kresge BBQ Pits and Lawn. The movie is set in 17th-century England, and – with only male actors allowed on stage – Ned Kynaston is London’s best “female” performer. But when Ned’s pride gets the best of him and he insults an aspiring actress (who happens to be the King’s mistress), the King decrees that only female actresses can play female parts. Ned is rejected by the new London stage. The only person willing to help him is Maria, Ned’s former assistant…who also took his role as Desdemona. Can Ned swallow his pride long enough to accept her help? For questions, email ensemble-request@mit.edu. For more details, visit here.
