The Fair Maid of the West

by Thomas Heywood

Directed Philip Lehl

February 6 through 24, 2019 

Classical Theatre Company will venture into new waters with the lady pirate Bess Bridges in Thomas Heywood’s The Fair Maid of the West. This production will be a local professional premiere of Heywood’s Renaissance drama on the high seas. To be directed by award-winning CTC Company Artist Philip Lehl, this play provides a rare opportunity for strong female characters in plays from this era. “I’m excited to direct this play because of the potent nature of the female protagonist,” says Lehl. “Heywood was a contemporary of Shakespeare’s and Fair Maid presents a great opportunity for audiences who like Shakespeare but are looking to enjoy a new story. It serves as a nice reminder that there are worthy playwrights from that time period besides Shakespeare.”
