Things are not what they may seem.


This is not the Shakespeare you were bored by (or poorly taught!) in schools! Spend some time with the DLP and you will see that the 'Shakespearean' plays are hilarious, scandalous, sexy, and downright sacrilegious. These parodies and satires (comedies, tragedies, and histories alike) were brilliantly crafted by the Dark Lady herself, the feminist poet Amelia Bassano Lanier. We reveal these deviant, intellectual, and divisive hidden meanings in our experimental theatrical performances, in lectures, demonstrations, and flashmobs around New York City, and starting in February at our monthly salon events and burlesque shows. Free your mind - join the ranks of the DLP!

we  love  you and

we  want  to

send  you
