Theatre @ York is delighted to announce its 2019-20 season, built around the theme of performing gender.
This year we will present Ann Marie MacDonald’s Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), directed by Jennifer Tarver, and Timothy Findlay’s Elizabeth Rex, directed by ted witzel, as well as a series of other studio shows and student-led productions, including The Ashley Plays, playGround, the Devised Theatre Festival, and Scenes by Design.
Timothy Findlay’s Elizabeth Rex shares Good Night Desdemona’s interest in the Shakespearean canon.
Here, Findlay imagines an intimate meeting between a group of players and Queen Elizabeth I, who has ordered a command performance of Much Ado About Nothing as she awaits the execution of a former lover, the Earl of Essex.
With wit and poetry, Findlay explores the entanglement of love, desire, and gender identity.

A Relaxed performance is intended specifically to be sensitive to and accepting of audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment. The performance is designed to reduce anxiety and provide a safe, enjoyable experience, taking into account variable sensory, communication or learning needs and abilities. This means that there is a more casual-than-usual approach to front-of-house etiquette and we ask audience members to be aware of people''''s needs to move or make involuntary noise.Venue:
