New York's gutsiest classical company, Red Bull Theater, presents a rare production of the 1592 domestic tragedy Arden of Faversham: a true-crime story based on a Valentine's Day murder plot by a married woman, her lover and a collection of inept conspirators. Although the show's authoriship has never been established, some scholars have attributed parts of it to Shakespeare; this adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher and Kathryn Walat emphasizes the play's potential as a comedic noir thriller. Red Bull honcho Jesse Berger directs an ensemble that includes Cara Ricketts and Tony Roach as the adulterous plotters and downtown treasure Thomas Jay Ryan as their victim.
