Reneé O’Connor and Jed Sura Head New Professional Intimate Theatre

Fulfilling a desire to present educational and immersive theatre, House of Bards Theatre Company has launched with the announcement of their first production, Shakespeare’s powerful drama Macbeth. The new company, headed by television and film actors and producers Reneé O’Connor and Jed Sura, will be opening their inaugural show on October 11 at the Grand Annex located in the Arts District of San Pedro, California.

Macbeth runs October 11 through November 3.  School groups are encouraged to attend, with special 10:00am field trip shows available to arrange. Also in the works are Youth Shakespeare Intensives, offering a curriculum including character development, rehearsals, and performances of some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.

O'Connor is best known for her role as Gabrielle, Xena’s trusted sidekick on the tremendously popular fantasy series Xena: Warrior Princess. She and Sura were recently seen on stage at Little Fish Theatre in the Los Angeles premiere of Steven Dietz’s On Clover Road. They also co-produced and starred in the independent feature film Watch the Sky. O’Connor reprises the role of Lady Macbeth after a triumphant run in 2002 with Shakespeare by the Sea.
