Willing Suspension Productions was founded in 1993 by a group of
graduate students in Boston University's Department of English for a
production of Thomas Middleton's _Revenger's Tragedy_.  In following
years, we have produced Ben Jonson's _The Alchemist_, Thomas Kyd's
_Spanish Tragedy_, and Middleton's _Chaste Maid in Cheapside_.  The fall
of 1996 saw our first non-Renaissance production (and our first fall
show) which was William Wordsworth's _The Borderers_.

The company is dedicated to producing rarely performed plays of
theatrical as well as intellectual interest.  For more information,
