November 17 - 20, 2016 - Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

A dark comedy about the timeless quest for beauty—and its cost. Three women from different centuries meet in a modern doctor's waiting room. Forgiveness From Heaven is an eighteenth-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a nineteenth-century tightly corsetted English woman suffering from what is commonly known as "hysteria." Then there is Wanda, a modern gal from New Jersey who is having problems with her silicone breasts. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the drug industry and the FDA all come under examination. The play is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, including the politics of the ever-present battle with breast cancer.

Actors From The London Stage is the national outreach program of Shakespeare at Notre Dame. This unique educational program was developed in 1975, by Homer Swander, at the University of California at Santa Barbara. The theatre company is now based in London and at Shakespeare at Notre Dame.

The artists, comprised of five British Shakespearean actors from such companies as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre of Great Britain, and Shakespeare’s Globe, among others, devote a large part of their time to lectures, workshops, seminars, and informal meetings with students.

Their stay provides student and faculty with a unique opportunity both to observe extraordinary performances and to discuss literature and the art of theatre in depth with some of the most talented artists from some of the most important theatre companies in the world.
