Scripps, Scarlet Maressa Rivera.

Double Falsehood, written in 1727 and based off of original Shakespearean manuscripts, is a layered exploration of honor, rape, discourse, dishonesty, promises and love. The classical text follows the form of a standard 5 act Shakespearean comedy, surfeit with cross-dressing, anguished lovers, foibled fathers, heroic royalty and privy (yet silent) citizenry. It is a smart and scathing contrivance that demands dialogue around why, in nearly 300 years, our society continues to deal in violence, blame and victimization. This initial showing is part one of a three phase project designed to start the conversation and incite a change of perspective in young adults and our society as a whole.
