About this event:
Best Medicine Rep Theater Company, whose mission is to bring more laughter into the world, presents Philosophus by Colin Speer Crowley, screwball comedy, mixing history with slapstick chaos.
It’s 1757, and the world-famous philosopher Voltaire has fled the court of Frederick the Great, intending to publish a sensitive manuscript of the King’s poems. But Voltaire’s attempts to embarrass the monarch run afoul in Frankfurt, where he is arrested by the cruel Baron Franz von Freytag and must scheme his way to freedom.
Scheduled to perform in the reading are local talents Terence Aselford, Terence Heffernan, Rebecca A. Herron, Deborah Lubega, and John Morogiello. A discussion with the playwright will follow the performance.
