On June 22, one of The Villain’s Theatre’s most popular traditions is returning in a new form – our summer play-in-a-day! If you’re not familiar with the idea, this is where we take a script, get together with a volunteer group of performers, and within the course of a day we come up with tickle trunk costumes and cardboard props, and create a script-in-hand-staging which is often ludicrous, always funny, and generally a blast for audience and performers alike.
The Villains Theatre is pleased to announce that this year’s Play-in-a-Day is a joint FUNDRAISER with The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op! Check it out and support two companies that strive to help both emerging and established Nova Scotian artists.
This year’s offering?
Saturday June 22, 8pm:
The year is 1602. Queen Elizabeth the first is disturbed about mysterious thunderstorms threatening the kingdom. She hires her master spy, Sir Nicholas Fury, and the court physician, Doctor Stephen Strange, to get to the bottom of it. Heroes, villains, curiosities, and marvels come together in an epic battle spanning Europe and across to the New World. A school for gifted youngsters and their clairvoyant professor, a fearless – and blind – mercenary, even a familiar fantastic foursome all square off in the most ambitious crossover/staged reading of all time, adapted by Dan Bray from the graphic novel ‘1602’ by Neil Gaiman… THE AVENGERS TRAGEDY!
