McCallum High School will be presenting Love’s Sacrifice Friday, May 13th through Sunday, May 15th. This little-known Caroline-era play was recently staged for the first time in almost four centuries. This rare tragedy comes to life at the McCallum stage.
Duke of Pavia is struck with love at first sight and has married the beautiful Bianca. However, he is not the only one who has affections for her. Unbeknownst to him, his best friend Fernando has fallen for his wife Bianca. With each passing day, Fernando finds it more and more difficult to conceal his true feelings for her. While the Duke remains unaware of his friend’s dilemma, his sister realizes what is happening. The jealousy in her heart over her own desires for Fernando makes her manipulate her brother, encouraging him to act against his friend.
Love’s Sacrifice has strong echoes of Shakespeare’s Othello with a thrilling revenge tragedy powered by the destructive force of unrequited love.

I am happy to report, thanks to Michelle Burns, Realtor, Best Agents in Texas, that we are now, officially, doing our part to keep Austin weird! The homeowner in Round Rock accepted our offer - and our 4 screwy pets - so it is off to the Capital of TX next week! Now you all have someone to visit when you come through the only city in America where Willie Nelson could conceivably run things one day... Gotta love it!"
