LAAC Presents Fugitive Kind Theater’s Midsummer & Macbeth

Producer Marissa Moses has brought together eight actors and two directors and asked the question, “What if we performed two of Shakespeare’s most iconic and evocative plays, one, right after the other?” Opening November 17th, in rare and raw visions by directors Amanda McRaven (Macbeth) and Beth Gardiner (Midsummer), eight actors take on multiple roles and embark on a marathon of athletic storytelling on a single, darkly poetic set.

“The worlds of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth share very little, but we found a powerful intersection in the presence of the woods – ominous, transformative spaces that provoke the characters in both plays to push themselves into undiscovered country. Similarly, I suppose we are pushing ourselves as storytellers; it’s a challenging task, but in this profession we would be remiss not to welcome that challenge,” said actor Jim Senti.

This nomadic production of the tandem plays will be presented in two spaces over three weekends in the Los Angeles area: first at the new studios at Los Angeles Arts Collective in Westchester (near LAX) and then downtown at Collaborative Arts LA for the final two weekends. McRaven and Gardiner have streamlined and adapted both texts, distilling them into powerful, fast-paced stories, each unfolding in ninety minutes or less and will be performed with an intermission between them. All performances start at 6:30 pm.
