Gender Comedy: 
A Less Stupid Twelfth Night 
Gay Fantasia
A World Premiere
by Harry Slack 

Admit it.  Shakespeare’s comedies are stupid.  Like Twelfth Night.  Everybody knows it needs robots.  Well, now it’s got ‘em! We have gender confusion, needlessly cruel drunks, and cyborgs.
It’s the play Queen Elizabeth I 

never wanted you to see!

MACBETH

Why is Shakespeare’s “Scottish play” the perfect autumn thriller? It has it all!  Deceit, intrigue, treachery, murder, backstabbing (literally!), plus witchcraft and ghosts give it the spooky feel that sets you on the edge of your seat.  Director Dan Hodge (of the acclaimed Philadelphia Artists Collective) is crafting a fast-moving production different than any other version you’ve seen. He’s placed it just after the First World War, full of the occult and the birth or our modern world, but still the classic tale of a man and his wife, temptation, and the  prophecies made by a trio of witches. The acclaimed Hedgerow Stage and the bare stone walls provide the perfect backdrop for a spooky, bloody, war-torn world where “something wicked this way comes.”
