When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the Game of Tiaras, you win or you die.

From Mr. Howard:  

I've always been a fan of watching dark comedies.    The biting nature of them often finds characters saying what you wish they would in real life, but never do.  More importantly,  dark comedies have something to say about the world we live in and typically say them in a really powerful, and often unexpected way.   Uninetown is a good example of a dark comedy.  Martin McDonagh is a playwright/screen writer whose works I truly enjoy (and would NEVER put on at Westwood High School). 

I'm looking forward to exploring this work with the cast as we all discover what it is the play is telling us about the world we live in  today.
