A comedy? about performing Shakespeare
by Kathleen Akerley
A professional garage theatre gets a large donation to go off-brand and try to “solve” Shakespeare: what is the best way to tell his stories now? What really are our reasons for producing him after hundreds of years? Is it more exciting to talk about his plays than to see them? Seven actors, seven wildly varying approaches to Hamlet and Macbeth, and seven rehearsal melees later, a door opens into the unbounded realm where personal experience meets timeless storytelling.
Or it’s the door into the Green Room. Hard to tell.
Featuring: Tom Carman, Ashley DeMain,Vince Eisenson, Michael Glenn, Jennifer J. Hopkins, Séamus Miller, Amal Saade, and Matthew Alan Ward
