Ethelred The Unready 

When: Dec. 1-10 2016
Price: $8-$10

It's not a good thing when a monarch's name contains its own punch line. In Old English, Æthelred means "nobly counseled." Unfortunately for his subjects at the end of the tenth century, Unready meant "poorly counseled," not unprepared. Like Henry VI, the other hapless British king we've encountered on the local stage this year, Ethelred was also thrust onto the throne as a child. Ultimately, both proved easy marks for advisors more interested in their own agendas than the good of their country. Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern artistic director Jaybird O'Berski directs Dana Marks in the memoirs of a noble incompetent at venues around the Triangle, including the Living Arts Collective in Durham, N.C. State's University Theater in Raleigh, the West End Wine Bar in Chapel Hill, the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, and Mystery Brewing Company in Hillsborough. You can find all the details on Little Green Pig's website. —Byron Woods
