King John

Thursday, July 25-Sunday, July 28

Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park presents another Shakespeare masterpiece in Oklahoma City. The Life and Death of King John tells the story of the reign of King John of England, youngest son of King Henry II. Controversy comes his way when France’s King Philip orders King John to step down from the throne to let his nephew, Prince Arthur, rule. A war ensues. While King John defends his title, he learns more of his family and more about himself. From Thursday, July 25-Sunday, July 28, King John will be performed at Oklahoma City University’s Burg Theatre, located in the Kirkpatrick Fine Arts Center, 2501 N. Blackwelder. The drama begins at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10-$15 and can be purchased at www.oklahomashakespeare.com.
