Tug Of War: Foreign Fire  
Chicago Shakespeare Theater Tug Of War: Foreign Fire
 
Foreign Fire is the first installment of Artistic Director Barbara Gaines' electrifying adaptation, Tug of War, which distills six Shakespeare plays into two action-packed dramas that trace the rise and fall of kings, and the uncommon courage of common men. In the spirit of addictive epic sagas, like Scandal and House of Cards, tensions build as the origin stories of Shakespeare's most iconic rulers unfold-underscored by stunning staging, live music, surprising poignancy and humor. The adventure begins with England's war with France in Edward III, Henry V and Henry VI, Part 1, and its very personal consequences on all who bear arms. The action continues in Fall 2016 with Tug of War: Civil Strife.
