Marin Shakespeare Company begins its 2012 outdoor summer festival season with "King John."
This rousing story of battle for the English throne, the rarely performed "King John" is an action-packed history play full of humor, drama and pathos when King John is asked to renounce his throne in favor of his nephew Arthur. Against a backdrop of shifting fortunes, politics and family dynamics, Shakespeare reveals human complexity and fallibility in this compression of history. Directed by Lesley Schisgall Currier
