What You Will has opened and the critics are loving it! Check out The Pear Theatre website for more details!
For the realistically portrayed characters, Hayes is a standout as Malvolio, her acting subtle, yet convincing... The entire ensemble is a well-oiled machine, turning the small theatre-in-the-round into a world where comedy, intrigue, and confusion reign and their audience becomes co-conspirator. So, to see or not to see? This fun, funny and complex play is a can’t-miss midsummer night's dream. -- Palo Alto Weekly
I am thrilled to announce that I will be doing two shows back-to-back this summer that coincidentally both use Shakespeare text in new, exciting, and very different ways.
What You Will runs 6/22 through 7/16. Tickets available here.
"Fluff up your shoulder pads and unsheathe your daggers: MacBitch doth come. From the team behind last season’s The Awakening comes a brand new "Frankenplay" sprung forth from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, sporting hints of Golding’s Lord of the Flies, and with totally sick aesthetics pillaged from your favorite cult films about high school hierarchies. Collaging classics with original text, MacBitch examines the formation of female identity around ambition and a prevailing culture of woman-on-woman violence through kitsch and cootie-catchers."
Macbitch runs in July and August. Stay tune for updates!
I've had the absolute pleasure of working with The BreadBox Theatre Company's Oren Stevens and Ariel Craft for the past week on a brand-spanking-new piece, MacBitch. Artistic director Ariel Craft describes it as "a mash-up of William Shakespeare's MACBETH, William Golding's LORD OF THE FLIES, and the cult classic HEATHERS". It's weird, funny, creepy, and lots of fun! Come here us read it out loud for the first time ever, tonight and tomorrow night at 8pm at the Exit Theatre in San Francisco. And it's free!
After a lovely summer recess, I'm very excited to announce that I'll be performing in Hillbarn Theatre's production of A FEW GOOD MEN as Dr. Stone. Directed by Joshua Marx, this play is sharp, witty, and exciting. Rehearsals begin at the end of this month and performances are in October. Come check it out!
Dragon Productions Theatre Company is to be congratulated for grappling with the difficult but thought-provoking subjects of this complex play and for bringing When the Rain Stops Falling to its audience.
Come check out this production before we close on May 29th. More info and tickets at The Dragon's Website!
When The Rain Stops Falling opened this past weekend at The Dragon Theatre in Redwood City. Directed by the talented Kimberly Mohne Hill, this beautiful play weaves together the stories of four generations, who unknowingly influence and echo each other. Come check it out! More info and tickets are available here.
Tonight is the last night to see the reading of Alexandra Petri's play Never Never. "A covert support group for dangerous deviants insists upon total abstention, but never is an awfully long time." It's a fascinating look at an extremely difficult topic; it's ethics and perception. As Petri said herself, "it is a moral puzzle." And I have the pleasure of playing a beautifully-written role in it. Come check it out! 8pm at the Exit Theatre in San Francisco. More info on the BreadBox website!
