Tiny Theatre will be attending “Richard III” at the Edge Theater (5451 N. Broadway) on Sunday October 9 at 3:00: Aligned with their mission of representing marginalized voices, “BWBTC Shakespeare” specifically features actors of marginalized genders to provide an opportunity for audiences to perceive these classic stories through a new lens. For this production, BWBTC has partnered with UIC’s Disability Cultural Center to tell the tale of Richard of Gloucester’s rise to power. Casting both disabled and non-disabled actors, this production will not only examine stage combat as a storytelling tool, but interrogate the divide between “regular” theatre and “theatre for the disabled”.
Following the play, the group will meet at “Pearl’s Southern Comfort” (5352 N. Broadway) for dinner at 5:30. Their marvelous menu is a range of Southern dishes from Gumbo, Catfish, Cornbread and Ribs. To make a reservation call 773.754-7419 for Bobbe’s Table.
