Duplicity Ensemble Kick Off 2nd Season With A MIDWINTER NIGHT'S TALE Today


Inspired by the horrific winter of last year, Duplicity Ensemble combines two of Shakespeare's greatest plays to create a comedy to combat cabin fever. Four lovers crash into the quiet cabin of an old couple on a stormy night only to discover it's not as quiet as it seems. Magic, poetry, and muffins make for a heartwarming 90 minutes. But will everything get set right when everything goes wrong?

Written by ensemble members Anne Walaszek and Nathan Wonder, this modern Shakespeare mash-up is directed by Mike Hamilton. Mike Hamilton holds a B.F.A. in Theatre Performance from Virginia Commonwealth University. Primarily a performer in Chicago, he has worked with The Neofuturists, The Building Stage, Griffin Theatre Company, Awkward Pause, Redmoon, Alluvium Group, Lights Out Theatre, and coming up will be in Jackalope's new play Lunacy!

The cast of A Midwinter Night's Tale includes Eliza Rose Fichter, Amanda Giles, Matthew Lunt, Kit Rivers, Charlotte Thomas, and Kyle Whalen.

A Midwinter Night's Tale will be performed at Filament Theatre (4041 N Milwaukee) from today, March 20 - April 12, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm. Industry Night: April 6th at 8pm. (Note: there will be no performance on April 5th.) Tickets are on sale now for $20 | $15 student/industry, with special discounts available for groups of 10 or more.
