Willing Suspension Productions Presents
Arden of Faversham
Written by Anonymous
Under the [...]sponsorship of the Boston University English Department and the Center for the Humanities, "Arden of Faversham" was performed on March 27, 2014, by Willing Suspension Productions, a group of graduate and undergraduate students dedicated to producing rarely-seen early modern plays. Alice Arden is plotting with her lover Mosby to kill her wealthy husband, Arden of Faversham. They recruit a variety of co-conspirators, from his manservant Michael, the artist Clarke, and disappointed landowner Greene to the ruffians Black Will and Shakebag. Unfortunately for the conspirators, a series of increasingly frustrating accidents thwarts their every attempt to end Arden's life, as Arden's friend Franklin becomes more and more suspicious of Alice's motives. Things finally come to a head one memorable evening at the Arden home.
