ISC was founded in 1998 by a group of actors who shared a passion for classical works. They were intent on rendering vivid productions of Shakespeare’s plays. Their focus was stripping back the conventions of contemporary theater and placing their attention onto the spoken word. Shakespeare produced his plays without lighting, without recorded sound, and without elaborate scenery and costumes, as do they.

One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies tells the story of a kingdom in disorder. Its rightful leader is banished, a young man is denied his due by his malevolent elder brother, and a woman is exiled from the place that has always been her home. All of their paths lead away from the “painted pomp” of the court into the heart of the forest of Arden. It’s a place where natural laws outweigh the laws of man and the force of love reigns supreme. As bitter winter passes into the bloom of spring, the residents of Arden discover that transformation is always possible, and sometimes the disguises we wear are the best way to discover who we are.
