About The Play

Fixing King John tells the story of one of history's shittiest kings, so self-obsessed with his own legacy that he drives his country to war, is willing to kill women and children, and rejects the authority of God and church. But even within King John there is a drop of sweet honey. Will he find a way to redeem his rule before his kingdom collapses? You can't go wrong trying to find out. Whether you know Shakespeare's King John backwards and forwards, or simply want to see the best contemporary drama, attending Fixing King John will fix everything that's wrong in your life.

The ridiculously talented ensemble features Lowell Bartholomee, Florinda Bryant, Jay Byrd, Barbara Chisholm, Robert Faires, Robert S. Fisher, Tom Green, E. Jason Liebrecht, Jeffrey Mills, and Adriene Mishler, with design by Stephen Pruitt and Olivia Warner, and original music from Peter Stopschinski.

About our Fixing Shakespeare Series

Taking place in rotation with our Contemporary Classics series, our new series, Fixing Shakespeare will make William Shakespeare's least produced works useful again. Ask yourself how many Shakespeare plays you know or have seen, subtract that number from thirty-seven (depending on who you ask), and those are the plays we are working to fix using our patented performance creation methodology, contemporary English, and adding curse words. (Shakespeare cursed plenty, but most Elizabethan curse words have lost their spice. Zounds!)

In some ways, we're offering you a more authentic experience of what a new Shakespeare play might be like than an actual Shakespeare play. In other ways, not so much.
