Anything but tame
Director Peter Sampieri and an ace troupe are mounting a slam-bang production of the comedy that sparkles with originality and resolves a feminist objection to the play that we can assume is older than the play itself.

Robert Frost, loving his little rhymes, once compared writing free verse to playing tennis without a net. Playwright David Hirson might very well enjoy swinging a racket in shackles, considering the fun he’s had composing La Bête entirely in rhymed co
