Shrewd Productions presents Hold Me Well
Shrewd Productions' world premiere of Hold Me Well, a post-apocalyptic re-imagining of one the most captivating tales of seduction, jealousy, and betrayal ever written, William Shakespeare’s Othello.
Inspired by '70s-era sci-fi and Shakespeare's Othello, Eva Suter’s Hold Me Well envisions a desolate, Central Texas inhabited solely by women after a weapon, the result of a catastrophic war, has eradicated the male population. With the threat of another war dangling precariously over their heads and a new romance quickly unfolding before them, five women bound by the tragedy must entrust their lives to one another in order to save themselves and humanity. Charged with the treacherous task of protecting “the seed,” an old grudge, constant fear and waning hope threatens to upend their unity and their safety.
