In case you missed the reference in today’s Audience Choice Awards show, Rorschach Theatre has given 6 playwrights – Norman Allen, Randy Baker, James Hesla, Jacqueline E. Lawton, Anne M. McCaw, Gwyddion Suilebhan – 6 days to Myth Appropriate tales from the Brothers Grimm.
This is the first of what promises to be an annual Magic in Rough Spaces event. In the Rorschach blog, Scott McCormick warns everyone ‘Remember, we’re not Walt Disney. Yes, I know we have been referred to as a Mickey Mouse operation, but there the similarity ends.’
This year’s project is called MYTH-APPROPRIATION: The Brothers Grimm. There will be two performances of these modern takes on 6 Grimm fairy tales: this Saturday, September 8th at 8 & 10 pm. Tickets are $10, and available online. Performances at The Sanctuary Theatre in the Casa del Pueblo Methodist Church, 1459 Columbia Road NW, Columbia Heights, Washington DC.
