Get involved with Villains! Bring Shakespeare’s best bad guys to the largest theater festival in the world!
Earlier this year (or late last year, whatever, I don’t really subscribe to the idea of “time”), I acted in a play that my friend Brian Elerding edited and directed for his theater company, the California Shakespeare Ensemble. It took a look at the arcs of three of Shakespeare’s more ambiguous (Tybalt, Shylock [who I played], and the Macbeths) with the aim of questioning what villainy is, what makes a villain, etc. It was a hell of a lot of fun to do and people enjoyed it and there are some super awesome swordfights. I’m very, very proud of the work that was done and look forward to doing it again. Anyhow, the deal is, we are looking to take it to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland later in the year, followed by a run in LA. Being but poor, charming actors, we are asking for donations. I’d sure appreciate it if you’d take a moment to look at the Indiegogo campaign and donate if you can. And if not, reposting would be awesome too. Thanks so much you beautiful featherbeasts!
