James and Jamesy in the Dark

1:00 PM, Al Green Theatre

Photo of James & Jamesy

James & Jamesy in the Dark begins in blackness. Soon, two chaps, who each believe they are alone in existence, happen upon each other. The encounter launches them into a series of physical and philosophical discoveries, overflowing with intricately layered wordplay. As they navigate this inky limbo, they conjure an adventure around creation itself. The visually spectacular show is a painting come to life; a rich, raw encounter that blends the playfulness of Pixar with the existential ponderings of Beckett.

Photo of Ingrid Hansen by Laura DittmanIn this futuristic scenario, North American Prime Minister Justin Bieber takes it upon himself to end world hunger by deforesting the continent to plant thousands of acres of genetically-modified swiss chard.

The Scottish play, an ancient curse, and a disembodied head on a dessert trolley out for revenge is the story of actors Tim and Rupert who activate an ancient curse and awaken Macbeth’s severed head, who’s athirst for revenge on William Shakespeare for ruining his life. The Head, using his arcane powers, enslaves Tim and Rupert, and then brings Space Pirate Cleopatra, gender bending Richard III, and Hip Hop Hamlet to life to help in his insidious designs. It’s up to Tim and Rupert to stop the maniacal Head lest Shakespeare’s works are obliterated from the face of the earth forever!
