Dido, Queen of Carthage

By Christopher Marlowe

Directed by Colin Loeffler

Christopher Marlowe's moving supernatural romantic tragedy Dido, Queen of Carthage comes to Madison.

Troy has fallen. A small band of survivors are reunited near Carthage, a peaceful refuge. But the gods are restless, indifferent, and unkind. They craft love triangles for their own amusement, and soon Carthage is in chaos.
