Upstart Crows of Santa Fe present:
We few, we happy few
Shakespeare’s History Plays Workshop
Directed by Ariana Karp
Lighting design by Jayden Chavez
Eleven young Shakespeareans ages 10 to 19 take multiple roles in a performance of scenes from Shakespeare’s English history plays.
The scenes feature moments from Richard II, Richard III, Henry IV, Henry V, Henry VI, and King John, with battles, shifting allegiances, revenge, rumor, abdication, reminiscence, and merriment. Ranging from the battlefield to the royal gardens, from the prison to the tavern, we get a taste of some of Shakespeare’s most fascinating characters, complex relationships, and unsurpassed rhetoric.
Friday • July 13 • 7 p.m.
Saturday • July 14 • 7 p.m.
Pre-show talk by Robin Williams at 6:30 p.m. before each show.
Order online at BrownPaperTickets.

Upstart Crows of Santa Fe is a theater group for young people ages 10 to 18 with a focus on understanding and performing the works of Shakespeare. Actors experience the plays first hand, exploring Shakespeare’s language and meaning with the help of experienced directors. No prior acting experience is necessary and there are no auditions—all who wish to participate receive substantial roles. Performances evolve from participants gaining an in-depth understanding of the material and collaboration on the production.
The Crows perform uncut Shakespearean plays and workshops. They also have an active outreach program, including workshops and performances for schools.
