Voices Found Repertory presents Theatre Games
May 3 – 7, 2017Theatre Games

Theatre Games is a fast-paced psychodrama by emerging Midwestern playwright Pharyne Stephney that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. When five Shakespeare characters find themselves stranded in an abandoned theatre with a script, a princess, and a guy named Bill, they must piece together the convoluted machinations of their boss before it’s too late. But when everyone’s script is a secret, who’s to say what’s written and what’s improvised? Reminiscent of Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, this never-before-seen play directed by Jake Russell Thompson takes us into an unraveling world of crime, secrets, and psychopathy.

Voices Found Repertory presents Twelfth Night
May 10-14, 2017

A diverse ensemble bring this comedy of music, poetry, and unrequited love to the Arcade Theatre. After the darkness of Theatre Games comes Twelfth Night, with all the color and energy of a 1980s music video.
One of Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedies, Twelfth Night in a modern context is one of his most pro-LGBT+ works. With his signature wit and heart, Shakespeare’s lovesick adventure in Illyria celebrates love, gender, and identity. It’s the breath of fresh air we need in the spring of 2017.
