UPDATE as of 10/23/10: We did it! But the story's not over yet... Thanks to our generous supporters, we've made our base goal, but we still have 11 days to raise money on here and trust me, we could use more help! The first $300 will cover the costume budget for The Revenger's Tragedy, but not our publicity, props, photocopying, scenic elements, or other necessities like good ole' gaff tape. SO, if you can't make it to the show, give a few bucks. Every little bit helps. Thanks!
VENUE UPDATE! The Revenger's Tragedy will take place at the Playground of the College of Education Preschool on ASU's Tempe campus. For a map, visit http://FestinaLenteTheater.org.
The Revenger's Tragedy is a dirty, sexy, bloody play that's as relevant now as it was when it was first performed at London's Globe in 1606. Festina Lente is taking a bite out of this darkly funny revenge drama, chewing it up, and spitting out a radical new adaptation--a meditation on power, desire, and the other primal human impulses that lead to acts of vengeance.
The Revenger's Tragedy will premiere as a site-specific, workshop production October 27-30, 2010 in Tempe. This workshop a vital first step in creating exciting new works of theater, which is the primary mission of our company.
We're resourceful types, so we're ready, willing, and able to work within a small budget on this show, and we're already working to build partnerships with other artists and local businesses to make both this project and future shows possible.
However, we still need to raise a little cash to get this thing on its feet, and that's where you come in. Every little bit helps, so please donate what you can today to make The Revenger's Tragedy a reality!
And remember: if we don't make our goal, we don't get anything, so please pledge whatever you can. The minimum pledge is only $2!
We shot some rough video during a couple rehearsals and combined it with an interview with the director to make the short video above. Check it out for more info about the show!
