To conclude our Ben Jonson First Folio Quadricentennial Season, Resurgens Theatre Company returns to Atlanta this November with the first fully staged professional production of Jonson’s classical tragedy ever attempted on this side of the Atlantic. Experience Rome’s political corruption and despotic cruelty as never before, as you marvel at the same poetic sounds that brought the playwright before the Privy Council on charges of sedition. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, Sejanus will also offer another first for Atlanta audiences—a full-fledged “original practices” production, which will include audience interaction, judicious editing, minimalist staging, organic music, original pronunciation, Renaissance costuming, same-sex casting (all-male), thematic doubling, an uninterrupted performance, and universal lighting.
