The impact of millions of people in all parts of the world coming together for one day of peace, is immense. Peace Day is also a Day of Ceasefire, personal or political.

7:30 PM Stage: Seize the King Will Power returns to the Playhouse in a five-person, full-throttle reinterpretation of Shakespeare's Richard III. With England's throne empty, Richard knocks down threats to his rule, fueling his insatiable ambition and paranoia. Even if the king can be stopped—who can ensure it won't happen again?

This upcoming World-Premiere play is a modern take on one of Shakespeare's classics and is written by Will Power and directed by Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Jaime Castaņeda. Will Power returns to the Playhouse in a five-person, full-throttle reinterpretation of Shakespeare's Richard III.
