Come see Bare Theatre's new site-specific, high-octane, action-packed, hilarious, genderqueer, 1980s-set interpretation of Shakespeare and Middleton's notoriously unfinished tragedy TIMON OF ATHENS, directed by Dustin Britt and starring 13 of the Triangle's finest actors, dancers, and stage combat experts.
The production will be presented at The Wicked Witch in Raleigh, but there will be three special performances at St. John's MCC in Raleigh. These performances are all pay-what-you-can at the door ($10 is suggested), sensory friendly, general admission, open to the public, and LGBT and women-focused organizations will be onsite to share information.
Cast, crew, and audience are encouraged to bring donations for The St. John's MCC Food Pantry and their Lunch Boxes of Love Ministry (LBOL), which provide food and other essential items to hundreds of people each month. Through LBOL, the pantry regularly feeds people at the South Wilmington Street Center Homeless Shelter for Men, the Love Wins Community Engagement Center, and at St. John's own City on a Hill Community Center on Maywood Avenue.
The production's content will be "toned down" to a PG-13 level so that younger folks can enjoy the performances.
Sponsored by the LGBT Center of Raleigh, The Wicked Witch, St. John's MCC, and Sonorous Road Theatre & Film Studio.
