Description

From the producers of Shit-faced Shakespeare, a new theatrical experience:

A Palpable Hit: Shakespeare’s Top Ten Fight Scenes presented by The Gunpowder Plot

Designed for explosive action, without the lengthy buildup, these are the highlights of the Bard’s best fight scenes, shot straight out of the Canon. Alternately funny and tragic, this is Shakespearetainment at its finest.

The Gunpowder Plot is a conspiracy of some of Boston’s top fight directors and combat actors. We present a rowdy showcase of the best fights in Shakespeare’s plays. This piece explores the world of meaning, and possible story, in the stage direction “they fight.”

Swordplay, slapstick, assassination, and freestyle 'ultimate fighting' will leave audiences wanting more.

Scenes include:

The Heavyweights:

Hamlet vs. Laertes,

Tybalt vs. Romeo vs. Mercurio

The Welterweights:

Petruchio vs. Katharina

Hernia vs. Helena

The rookie contenders:

Macbeth vs. Young Siward

Joan of Arc vs. King of France

And more surprises in the undercard!


Cast Featuring:

Angie Jepson*, Omar Robinson*, Gabriel Kuttner*, Daniel Berger-Jones, Sarah Gazdowicz, Marge Dunn, Cameron Gosselin, Dalton Gorden, Michael Anderson
