Historic Interpretations began our hiSTORY Stage program in 2012 with an original adaptation of St. George and the Dragon, and today we continue to entertain all ages with our selection of works sharing both history and classics alike.
The Maltese Bodkin
November 13 - 16, North Raleigh Arts & Creative Theatre
A comedy mystery with a Shakespearen twist, set in a 1940's radio station as the broadcast of the tales of Birnam Wood, hard boiled detective, are broadcast across the airwaves to the homes of eager listeners. The real solution to the mystery seems to be in discovering the secret behind a mysterious dagger known as the Maltese Bodkin.
Proceeds from this production were donated to Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Fisher House Foundation and the USO.
Directed by Beth Roberts and written by David Belke.
On The Verge (Or, The Geography of Yearning)
July 24 - August 3, 2014 North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre
Cross the wordplay of S J Perelman with the world-in-a-time-warp vision of Caryl Churchill and you might approximate the special flavor of ON THE VERGE. In Eric Overmyer's chimerical new comedy, three `sister sojourners', each a prototypical Victorian lady explorer, equipped with dialog as pithy as their helmets, thwack their machetes through the wilderness while telling tales of past jaunts among the natives.
Directed by Rebecca Blum and written by Eric Overmyer.
William Shakespeare's, The Tempest
April 4-6 & 10-13, 2014 Raleigh Little Theatre, Raleigh, NC
Shakespeare's last play is considered by some to be his best work of theater, combining elements of mystery, romance, intrigue, broad comedy, magic, music and dancing!
Directed by Jeremy David Clos.

A true and accurate account of the 1599 zombie plague in London, William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead finds Shakespeare’s Henry V opening at the Globe Playhouse, but while the actors strut and fret, an excess of bile plagues the populace outside.

The Marowitz Hamlet
