Lear and Present Danger

From the Town & Gown Players:
The Town & Gown Players will wrap up yet another successful Second Stage season with John Brandt's "A Lear and Present Danger." The show is unique for the season in that it is performed in the style of Commedia dell'arte.

The unique feature of the Commedia dell'arte is that the dialogue in the show is entirely improvised. Brandt has been training his performers for three months to prepare for "A Lear and Present Danger". Each night of the show the performers will improvise the entire production using only a rough plot posted backstage. Audience members will even get a chance to vote on the outcome of the show.

"A 'Lear' and Present Danger" will be performed on Friday, July 27th and Saturday, July 28th at 8:00pm as well as a 2:00pm matinee on Sunday July29th. Tickets are $5.00 at the door (no reservations needed) at the Athens Community Theatre.
