Will On The Hill Returns

Will On The Hill

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Grover Norquist, a long time supporter of Shakespeare Theatre Company's Will On The Hill event. Both as a performer and someone that has helped bring on the Congressional Members that you love seeing take to the stage.

I also spoke with Samantha Wyer Bello, this year's Director of the Will On The Hill play. She is also the Senior Director of Engagement and Education at Shakespeare Theatre Company.

I discussed this year's production storyline, as well as what it was like to do this virtually. It's looking to be quite an event that you will NOT want to miss. You can hear both of my interviews below as well as get more info HERE

About Will On The Hill

Washington’s favorite congressional performers are returning to the screen this June with a witty script that skewers the federal capital’s unique political milieu!

This joyous and bipartisan evening of the Bard’s best take on power and politics raises money to support the theatre’s arts education and engagement programs, which reach students and community members at home, at school, online, and in our theatres.

This year’s witty script, Will on the Hill and Far Away—written by playwright, director, and actor Nat Cassidy (Any Day Now, Old Familiar Faces) and directed by STC’s Senior Director of Engagement and Education Samantha Wyer Bello—follows a definitely-not-mad scientist who crashes a Congressional hearing held to determine once and for all what’s so great about the works of the Bard. In this silly scenario harkening back to old sci-fi classics, a hapless handful of politicians are transported directly into the world of Shakespeare’s plays when a time machine backfires.
