“IN WAR WITH TIME”: HEAD TRICK THEATRE ANNOUNCES 2019-20 SEASON
PROVIDENCE——Head Trick Theatre announces its 2019-20 season, “In War With Time,” following its recently acclaimed productions of Goblin Market and Watch on the Rhine. Featuring two U.S. premieres, “In War With Time” is a season on an epic and an intimate scale, about the span of a life and the moments and choices that shape it.
The season opens in July 2019 with William Shakespeare’s Queen Margaret, adapted by Jennifer Dick; continues in October–November 2019 with Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, adapted by Hal Coase; and closes in March–April 2020 with Aphra Behn’s The Lucky Chance. All performances will take place at AS220’s Black Box, 95 Empire St., Providence, RI.
by William Shakespeare
adapted by Jennifer Dick
From captive war bride to warrior queen leading the House of Lancaster, Jennifer Dick’s adaptation traces the evolution of Shakespeare’s largest female role through the epic battles and political machinations of the Wars of the Roses. Is Margaret a hero or a villain?
by Virginia Woolf
adapted by Hal Coase
Below the surface of a single day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway lie all the choices that made her the person that she is. In Hal Coase’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s celebrated novel, time is fluid, and memories and thoughts have as much life as present action. Dive in.
THE LUCKY CHANCE
by Aphra Behn
Everybody’s trying to get ahead. Everybody’s trying to stay afloat. In Aphra Behn’s bawdy, honest comedy, money can always buy love – is luck enough to win it back? One way or another, someone’s getting screwed.
