A Wickedly Zany Road to Revolution

“Listen kid, I’ll keep your secret, but this revolution… it needs to happen now. We need to do it now.” 

 

A coworker dispute turns deadly in this morbidly funny new play. Set during the Assyrian Empire, The Handless King follows two humble government employees both tasked with tallying the dead in wake of a recent battle. The problem? Only one of them can keep their job. As the day wears on, truths are revealed, revolution draws near, and someone’s losing limbs before the sun is set. This world premiere-inspired by real artifacts from 728 BCE-explores a timeless truth: move with the times or get left behind. This high-octane historical fantasy comes to you after a wildly successful development at Amphibian Stage’s 2023 Sparkfest.

Something Wicked (a re-imagined Macbeth) is a first step in refreshing the default rehearsal structure. Utilizing a process-oriented approach means we get to slow down and explore. We are work-shopping this world, making sure we understand the rules, the hierarchy, and the beats before all the bells and whistles come in. It's a working rehearsal: questions are still asked, notes are still given and discussions are still had. I want to give this company time to marinate in the world we create together.

 

Then, after our offering in April, we’ll take a break and come back in October of 2024 with a full production!

We hope you get join us as well celebrate our first steps to a new theatre-making process.
