Capital Classics Theatre Company stages a gray-matter-tickling production of Richard III for its yearly festival devoted to the Bard. Guests can revel in incongruity as they ponder the play's tragic story while lounging in an idyllic garden outside The Carol Autorino Center at Saint Joseph College. In addition to packing a picnic, visitors may get comfy in the grassy theater by bringing lawn chairs, blankets, and beloved footie pajamas. The crowd will gasp as actors show off their sword-sparring skills before the show and head-bang as the Elizabethan Consort busts out authentic madrigal tunes. Although Shakespeare penned the play in the late 1500s, its themes of fate, power, and betrayal still resonate today, making this Groupon an ideal choice for a date-night outing or a violent skirmish with a cardboard cutout of Sir Laurence Olivier.
