EPIC Theatre Company presents Compleat Female Stage Beauty Written by Jeffrey Hatcher September 5th - 20th Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm | Sunday 2pm Tickets $15 General Admission, $12 Seniors & Students Theatre 82 & Café | 82 Rolfe Square
Epic Theatre Company begins its 2014-2015 with Jeffrey Hatcher's witty, lush, and fascinating look at the most famous actor to ever play female roles in Shakespeare's plays, and what happened when actual women were allowed to take his place.
It's 1661, and Edward Kynaston is a celebrity--of sorts. He's a man famous for playing roles like Desdemona in "Othello." But when an actress named Margaret plays Desdemona at a competing theater, the law preventing women from stepping onstage quickly crumbles, and Kynaston's time in the spotlight may be over.
A historical comedy, an examination of gender, and a brilliant satire of all things theater--Jeffrey Hatcher's "Compleat Female Stage Beauty" is the perfect way to usher in an Epic new season.
Jill D. Jones directs Jonathan Fisher, Kerry Giorgi, Patrick Keeffe, Paige Barry, Michael Shallcross, Elaine Leitao, Kevin Broccoli, Stephanie Traversa, Kyle DeMartino, Cherylee Sousa Dumas, Geoff White, and Christine Pavao.
