Bard Fiction Chicago Trailer

4y ago


Playing March 15 to April 15 at the Greenhouse Theater Center, Chicago. Tickets are $25. CALL 773-404-7336 NOW FOR TICKET RESERVATIONS. More info at Trailer for Commedia Beauregard's Chicago production of Bard Fiction, a play by Ben Tallen, Aaron Greer, Brian Watson-Jones and the members of the Pulp Bard Wiki. Directed by Christopher O. Kidder. Honor. Betrayal. Foot rubs. Shakespeare and Tarantino collide in this Elizabethan retelling of Pulp Fiction. The story follows the seedy characters of Tarantino's opus, now part of London's underworld, in seemingly disparate plotlines that merge in unexpected ways. An internet sensation when the idea first surfaced, it appeared on numerous blogs and news sites. It has captured the attention of writers from as far away as New Zealand who wanted to take part in the collaborative effort to bring this melding of high culture and pop culture to life. For a taste of what this show has to offer, please visit and peruse A Slurry Tale, the wiki that collects much of the worldwide effort. The play has gone through several iterations and was first presented in the Minnesota Fringe Festival as a single one-hour version by Tedious Brief Productions. Now the show has been expanded to be a full-length play that is being directed by Christopher O. Kidder for Commedia Beauregard, and features the music of Il Troubadore (who scored the 2011 production of A Klingon Christmas Carol). CAST Pumpkin Pie..... Stephen Dale Meadsweet Coney.....
