ANIMAL VS. ANIMAL, AN AESOP'S FABLES MASHUP
Theater for young audiences world premiere
by Steve Yockey | directed by Josh Costello
featuring Danielle Levin and Patrick Jones, members of Actor's Equity Association
Edna and Irwin are the best Aesop's Fables touring team around, but the "animal magic" is starting to wear thin. Can these astoundingly mismatched personalities really survive as a duo? Can stories like The Tortoise and the Hare save the day? Will Edna and Irwin even make it through today's performance?
Released from the workhouse, Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton returns to the Hill District to discover that he has a hit record! Even though the bluesman does not have two nickels to rub together, nothing is going to stop him from taking advantage of this opportunity... until he is found dead. Schoolboy's story becomes the bass line to the many melodies - lively, menacing, brooding - that rise from this vibrant community.
August Wilson's SEVEN GUITARS was extended one week and ran Aug 11 - Sept 11, 2011 at Marin Theatre Company in Mill Valley, California.
