  The Rape of Lucrece - by William Shakespeare
Peterborough - In the dark of night, a violent crime is committed and nothing will ever be the same. Dan Hodge, the first of Peterborough s Whitmore award winners, returns to the Players to perform his own one-man interpretation of Shakespeare s epic poem.

It s that good among the best I ve seen all year. Steve Barnes, Albany Times Union Rated PG-13
