When he revealed the identity of the Dark Lady of William Shakespeare's sonnets, historian A.L. Rowse's life was never the same. UNT Department of Dance and Theatre professor Dr. Andrew B. Harris has dramatized Rowse's experience in his play, The Lady Revealed, which will be performed in Dallas March 18 and 19.

The Department of Dance and Theatre is proud to announce, in collaboration with Theatre3 Dallas, two free performances of the workshop production of The Lady Revealed.

The Lady Revealed tells the story of Oxford historian A.L. Rowse and his controversial discovery of the identity of William Shakespeare's mistress, the Dark Lady of the Sonnets. Using the Case Books of Elizabethan astrologer, Dr. Simon Forman, Rowse discovered a woman who was too extraordinary to remain a footnote in the biography of Shakespeare. This Faustian tale plays out in The Lady Revealed.

The play takes place in three time periods – in 1993, on Rowse's 90th birthday; the 1970s, when Rowse made his famous claims about the Dark Lady; and the Elizabethan era, in which the audience sees Shakespeare and the Dark Lady as Rowse imagined them.

Jac Alder, founding director of Theatre3 Dallas, heads a cast of professional actors which includes three University of North Texas undergraduate students, Caroline Dubberly, Evan Scott and Kasey Tackett. The workshop production will be directed by George Boyd.

The two nights of performance, March 18 and 19 at 7 p.m., are free of charge and open to the public. Reservations can be made through the Theatre3 Box Office by calling 214-871-3300.
