Hit & Run Shakespeare: CYMBELINE will be the 11th show of the Hit & Run Shakespeare series. After that week's New Year's celebrations, Speyer Hall - University Settlement - 184 Eldridge St. in NYC shall prepare to welcome 13 brave, memorized but unrehearsed actors and their welcoming audience.
With their company of fully memorized actors, the company is ready to spin Shakespeare's tale of innocence, jealousy, and war to unknown places. Never read CYMBELINE? When a girl marries a man with unknown lineage... When men make a bets against each other... When the King of Wales makes Romans unhappy... There's a Shakespearean play. The First Folio claims that this play is one of Shakespeare's tragedies, but it is also often considered a "romance" by critics.
No rehearsal. No director. No plan. For those who are new to "Hit & Run", the rules and its audience are key factors to its success. Like a game, any dropped lines, missed cues or late entrances are considered "fouls" which a referee records on a scoreboard. The actor with the most fouls at the end of the evening is awarded a prize. Audience interaction is encouraged and the company gets revved up by it.
All tickets are $18 and are available at the door. This is an Equity Approved Showcase. Visit http://accidentalshakespeare.tumblr.com/.
