Rehearsals for Redwood Curtain’s Equivocation are underway getting ready for the show’s first preview performance on September 4. Fight choreography has been key in these rehearsals to develop fights that are exciting for the audience, but safe for the actors.
The actors also got a field trip on a recent evening when they needed an alternate space for rehearsals. Since cast member Dmitry Tokarsky is a member of the Coast Guard they were able to use an available meeting room, and get a helicopter tour, too! There was even a little bonus sword practice.
Equivocation by Bill Cain and directed by Catherine L. Brown, begins Thursday, September 4 and continues through Saturday, September 27 playing Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm along with a 2pm Sunday matinee on September 21. Get your tickets now.
England, 1605: Shagspere is commissioned by the prime minister to write the “true historie” of the Gunpowder Plot. And it must have witches! A witty and high-stakes political thriller with contemporary resonances, this intriguing play gallops from the great Globe to the Tower of London to the halls of Parliament to the heart of Judith, Shag’s young daughter, who finds herself unexpectedly at the very heart of the political, dramatic and – ultimately – human mystery.
