As a fan of the Fringe Festival (and Minneapolis theater in general), I try to know what is being presented throughout the year. The Fringe Festival has an e-mail newsletter; I got information on this show on the latest e-mail. Below are some of the details. I plan on being there by 7PM to make sure I get a ticket. Maybe I'll see some of you there.
Shadow Theatre Company
A reading of an expanded version of John Heimbuch's The Lives of the Most Notorious Highwaymen, Walking Shadow's Fringe hit from 2004. London's heated summer of 1720. The financial bubble grows, investment mania fills the air, and England's Thief-Taker General seizes his criminal empire in the shadow of the Tyburn Gallows. But when a daring young highwayman takes the streets, he cuts a path through London that could undo everything. A historical adventure of ambition and betrayal set in the world of crime, investment, and the printing press.
This new, full-length version will have two public readings:
Wednesday, September 5 at 7:30 pm and Friday, September 7 at 7:30 pm
at Walker Community United Methodist Church, 3104 16th Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55407. Tickets are $8, ($6 for Fringe button holders), or $4 for season subscribers. Tickets available at the door only.
The workshop will be directed by Amy Rummenie, and will feature Joe Papke, Keith Prusak, Matt Sciple, Buddy Haardt, Matthew Vire, and Amber Swenson.
