Melantius

To celebrate Brave Spirits’ fifth year of production, co-founders Victoria Reinsel and Charlene V. Smith return to the stage together in this sexy Jacobean revenge tragedy as two women determined to get what they want in a world ruled by the whims of men. Aspatia (Reinsel) is in love with the young gentlemen Amintor. He breaks their betrothal when the King bids him instead to marry Evadne (Smith). Eager to take his new bride to bed, Amintor is shocked when he learns that Evadne will not have sex with him because she is mistress to the King. Amintor joins up with Evadne’s brother to plot revenge and the bodies start piling up.

"...in another commendable turn, John Stange displays the passion and cunning of Melantius..." -- The Washington Post
