It's twisted love poetry on the edge of madness and merriment –a sword fight with masked kings, prophesying puppets, and singing clowns. The Rogues bring their “whirligig of ferocious creativity” (LA Weekly) to remix Shakespeare’s iconic scenes and make the Bard roll over in his grave.
Emotions run high and battle lines are drawn when family and political loyalties collide in a powerful new family drama by John Fazakerley. Tony-nominated director Wilson Milam (The Lieutenant of Inishmore) helms a distinguished ensemble cast in the world premiere of Corktown ’57.
Join Laura on a booze-soaked journey into hilarity, death and dementia. In 2009, she leaves LA and goes to Atlanta to take care of her aging father. A rollicking road trip gets derailed by ghosts of the past, late night Food Network binges and pill fueled hallucinations as she finds her way home.
The classic story set in Depression-era Kentucky narrated by Bradley Whitford (via video), featuring the rollicking bluegrass sounds of The Get Down Boys. For ages 8+. 10/29–12/11; 24th Street Theatre, 1117 W. 24th St., LA 90007; PH: 213-745-6516; www.24thstreet.org
