Last Weekend of Revolutions!

If you haven't gotten Revolutionary yet, you still have two days to redeem yourself.

No idea what I'm talking about? Shame on you.

Your own Tricklock Theatre Company spends a year gathering the best of the best theatre from all over the world and tricking them into coming here to perform for you during a three-week festival. And you've almost missed the whole thing! Again!

This is the Revolutions Festival's 6th (?) year, and so far, it's been FANTASTIC. The Marvellous and Bloodthirsty Billy the Kid was my personal favorite (it's vaudeville, no, it's satire, no it's pathos, no it's Brechtian, no ... it's fucking BRILLIANT is what it is -- totally Tricklock!). A hip-hop poet from NY, Idris Goodwin, was also fantastic at the Vortex Wednesday night (Stay tuned for more from him. He's sticking around to direct Tricklock in one of his own plays in February!).

This weekend, I will be sure not to miss the always-hilarious Reptilian Lounge at Tricklock's own performance space. 10:30 pm Saturday night. $7. Bring a bag of change (trust me, you'll need it!). Come on! Get sociable!

If you're up for something a little more intense and more challenging, meet me earlier that night at 7 pm, Kimo Theatre for:

In a hall in the palace of Pyrrhus, a non-stop tear-through of Racine’s Andromaque through the lens of contemporary International politics and culture. In the aftermath of the Trojan War, Orestes is in love with his ex-girlfriend Hermione who is in love with and engaged to be married to Pyrrhus who is in love with his captive Andromache who is still in love with her husband Hector who died when his head got smashed in and his body was dragged around a burning city last year. With fake blood and some oblique references to Montgomery Clift.

For more information and the full schedule, see the Tricklock webpage.

See you there!
