“As politicos across the U.S. scramble to discredit and disrobe those in power, a familiar phrase comes to mind: “When in Rome…” Acclaimed British director Jonathan Munby brings Shakespeare’s classic into the present tense-drawing current events into eerily sharp focus up against the poetry and supernatural mystery of the play. This timely production prompts the question: what happens when men feel they can no longer trust their elected leaders and when financial might dictates the rules of the game?” Please note: lunch is NOT included in the cost of this trip. This trip will take place on Sunday, M arch 10, 2013. Meet at the Wheeling Pavilion Senior Center, 199 N. First Street, Wheeling at 11:45 A.M. the bus will leave at noon.
