“And the Ass Saw the Angel” Is Clumsily Adapted But Intriguing

Religion can be confusing, muddled, and even incomprehensible at times.

Little Green Pig’s “Richie” Transforms Shakespeare’s “Richard II” into a Rollicking All-Female Pub Crawl

On Sept. 6-8, 13-15, and 20-22, Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern will give William Shakespeare’s circa 1595 English history play “Richard II” a gender-bending all-female Little Green Pig twist in “Richie: A Rolling Pub Crawl Based on Shakespeare’s Richard II,” which will be performed in downtown Durham, NC.
