Announcing Porcupine's Rifle In Leipzeig, for only one local show, as a part of the Spanish Armada Theater Company's new festival of plays written for and about animals and firearms. The play's main character, Nicholas Porcupine, recounts his tales as a German Soldier in World War I, a war whose consequences I feel have been largely underappreciated because World War II gets all the good movies and Nazis and Anne Frank and stuff like that. The play will have a cast of Off-Off Broadway favorites, including Matthew Trumbull and David DelGrosso, some thrilling fight choreography, and a mix-tape of terrific music from the mid-90s that we really didn't bother to acquire the rights to use. Tickets are $18, and if you use the code QUILLS at Smarttix the tickets are only $15 for the first performance only.
The Spanish Armada Theater Company is a new company dedicated to new and unexpected works. They embrace the flashmob model, where shows are seen once and then gotten rid of, in order to force audiences to accept and appreciate the liveness and fleeting nature of the stage. You can find out all about them at this site.
I'm really excited to be involved! First and only performance is in three days, so get your tickets now!
