Near: Edmunds plays the Beefeater in Shakespeare short

The award-winning Desert Rose Theatre returns to Mesa with a duet of one-act plays inspired by William Shakespeare and directed by founder Katherine Stewart. The collection, Shakespeare in Shorts, features George Bernard Shaw's witty Dark Lady of the Sonnets and the totally irreverent Roadhouse in Arden by Philip Moeller. This also marks the debut of Desert Rose Theatre at its new space, POOL Together, 1240 E. Main St.

Dark Lady of the Sonnets brings together a Beefeater (played by Ahwatukee Foothills resident David Edmunds); a brash, young William Shakespeare; the mysterious "Dark Lady" portrayed in many of his sonnets; and an aging, yet lustful virgin queen, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I in a fictional account one fated evening in London.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, Nov. 4, 5 and 6 and 2 p.m. Oct. 30 and Nov. 6. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for students, seniors (55 and over), teachers, military and first responders and $14 for children 12 and younger. Tickets may be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets online at
