Beowulf Alley Announces 2011-2012 Season

Beowulf Alley's 2011-2012 offerings include a little Shakespeare, an adaptation of a Nobel Prize-winner and more.

Here's the list:

Rough Crossing
by Oscar and Tony Award-winning Tom Stoppard
from an original play by Ferenc Molnar
Directed by Dave Sewell
September 8—October 2, 2011

Aboard the Italian Castle bound for New York are a quirky assemblage of show business egos, led by the writing team of Turai and Gal. Turai’s impossible mission: to somehow maneuver his partner, Gal, their neurotic composer, and two fading stars into cobbling together the next Broadway smash hit: The Cruise of the Dodo. His only prayer for success may well depend on the cabin steward with the unpronounceable name. Stoppard’s adaptation is no less than a retro-romp on the high seas!

“...(Stoppard) weaves an increasingly amazing pattern of verbal misunderstandings, eccentric character development, showbiz spectacle, and seagoing hazards, all of which come to occupy equal importance in the plot.” —London Times
