to submit to

The Winter of our Dyscontent

Made glorious SUMMER by this feat- nay, FEAST of a festival.Thomas Nast drawing Schurz Trumbell Dys Theatre Austin TX
March 1, 2, 8, 9 AND BEWARE THE IDES.

Here’s the rub: let’s get as many different takes on Shakespeare as possible, from as many different groups, individuals, and time periods as possible, and put ‘em all together under the same roof in joyous celebration of ye ol bard’s diverse influence on our communities. We’re looking for traditional interpretations, modernized stuff, classic homages, monologues, improvs, sketches, musics, et cetera, ad nauseam, carpe diem!

What is love? ’tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
What’s to come is still unsure:
In delay there lies no plenty,—
Then come kiss me, Sweet-and-twenty,
Youth’s a stuff will not endure.

Friends, Austinites, Countrymen: We’re soliciting from you, all of you, 2 to 20 minute segments that are in some way related to the bard, to be performed at Salvage Vanguard Theater once or more, at 8pm, the first two Fridays and Saturdays of March and BEWARE THE IDES (because we might indeed have a sxsw venue for a “best of” on the 15th and 16th). Click to go to the submission form at the Dys Theatre website.

Avaunt, player, the spaces are filling! Time is of the essence!
In most expedient haste, do alight thy pointer on this web-tastic form and submit thyself:
