Two Nights! Two Different Programs!, Santa Barbara Debut of Bedlam's "Hamlet"
FRI, APR 20
“No troupe in New York these days rides the storytelling momentum of theater more resourcefully or enthusiastically than Bedlam.” The New York Times
“The troupe calls itself Bedlam, which gives you some idea of its ferocious energy, but none at all of its clarity, precision and blissful good sense.” The New York Times
He is a dark, enigmatic prince obsessed with seeking revenge for his father’s death. She is a steadfast rebel who challenged the powers of the church to restore France to greatness. Iconic figures from two great dramatic classics – William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan – are brought vividly to life in two riveting stagings. Directed by Eric Tucker, four actors exhibit the “adventurously pared-down aesthetic” (The New York Times) that has made Bedlam theater company a critical darling in high demand. See these works as never before, reinvigorated by the New York-based troupe’s flexible, raw space that brings viewers in direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life.
