To our WomanKraft Friends and Family
Speak The Speech Theatre Company presents
A Company of Wayward Saints
by George Herman
directed by Dan Reichel

About the show: Speak The Speech Theatre’s second show this season offers us the chance to perform a little Commedia dell’arte with A Company of Wayward Saints. How do actors relate to each other? How does the audience relate to the actors? What does this all have to do with “The History of Man?” And how do you tell the “History of Man” in just under two hours? Such are the questions when a Commedia dell’ arte group wanders by mistake into the eye of an allegory. They are humanity, wayward saints all, who are far from home and without means. A nobleman may be their salvation if they can put on a good show for him. Surprisingly, the Company chooses to present the history of man, from the Garden of Eden through Everyman in birth, adolescence, marriage and death. Along the way they enact other wayward adventures such as the assassination of Julius Caesar and the homecoming of Odysseus. It is a fine mosaic of life redeemed…
***Note: There will be a group of 10+ WomanKraft friends going this Sunday, Feb 23rd at 2:00pm. If you would like to join us, tickets are only $10 for this group. Call (520) 629-9976 1-5pm Wed-Sat or (520) 904-8054for more information or to make a reservation***
