It’s been a whole week since the #MonksandWitches reading, but @weaverboquist’s songs are still stuck in our heads. Thank you to the phenomenal group of actors and musicians who brought this development project to life for the afternoon and to the audience who laughed, cried, and talked it out with us. It takes a village to raise a play and we’re so thankful for ours. #lathtr #newplay #newmusical #scriptdevelopment #musicaltheatre 📸: @rockyourreel

Clarissant (review)

“Playwright [Hailey Bachrach] crafted a wonderful set of characters, making many of these figures vividly alive and individual, rather than the cut-out figures one so often sees...And I cannot emphasize enough how director Allison Darby Gorjian and the whole cast so wonderfully meet their challenges. Every single character displays a startling range of nuance.”

Spoilers ahoy! Much as I love the tales of King Arthur, truth to tell I've seen very nearly no dramatizations of it that gave me much jo...

"Whitton Frank darts and plots craftily as Mordred, while wielding confident gravitas as Arthur...AND IT’S HER BIRTHDAY!!!”

Ok, the last part isn’t in the review, but it’s true and we think you should WISH HER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! If you’d like to do it in person this weekend, you can catch her in Clarissant at 8:00pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and at 2:00pm on Sunday.

“Clarissant” sets Arthur myth in apple-pie order | Theatre Ghost

“If you’re an Arthur fan, a lover of quasi-medieval romances, or a player of sword-and-sorcery games, you will find much delight in Clarissant. If you are a woman, a feminist of any wave, or an ally, you will enjoy it even more. This is the angle from which we need to see and tell these stories, from now on.”

“Clarissant” sets Arthur myth in apple-pie order December 10, 2018 Mark Leave a comment Back in the late Middle Ages, the hottest new serial drama was “The British Matter” — tales of King Arthur and his Round Table knights. The GOT-like stories were being invented, borrowed (no copyright l...

“[Dawn] Alden plays both Agravain and Guinevere, and [Olivia] Choate doubles as Lancelot. These two actresses especially do a fantastic job of differentiating between their two characters. Alden is impatient and testy as Agravain, but controlled and reserved as Guinevere. Choate plays the loyal Gawain with complete sincerity, but allows some cockiness to slip into her version of Lancelot.”

PLAYWRIGHTS! Have a twisted idea for a short play? Check out this ambitious, new company we love!

ANNOUNCING THE INAUGURAL TWISTED CLASSICS FESTIVAL:

Method and Madness Theatre Co. is seeking submissions of one act play proposals for their inaugural Twisted Classics Festival. The purpose of the Twisted Classics Festival is to expand on Method and Madness’ mission to bring classical theatre to the LA community by fostering new works that update or put a twist on a classic. Be it Shakespeare, Greek myth, folktale, legend, etc., we are open to re-imaginings of any classical or ancient stories and are looking to create a diverse festival of one-acts!

Submissions for the festival are due December 10th, see submission guidelines below. We will notify playwrights of their acceptance into the festival by the December 16th. The third week of January we will hold private readings of each one act to workshop the pieces. The first week in February we will perform staged readings of the pieces as a single bill of one acts. The exact dates and venue are being finalized.

To be considered for the festival, please submit a proposal for a one-act re-imagining of a classical text. The one-act should be no more than 15 minutes in length. The proposal should briefly outline the original text, how you intend to update or re-imagine it, and the goal or purpose of the update. Your proposal should also list your contact information, if you have a director in mind for the project, and the anticipated cast size. Please also submit a five-ten page playwriting sample. The writing sample can be any genre of play, and can be a draft of the piece you are proposing. Please submit your proposal and writing sample to [email protected] by December 10th.
