The Player King

July 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Written & Directed by Ron Pederson

Designed by Joseph Abetria

Starring Rodrigo Beilfuss

Original music composed and performed by Cuinn Joseph.

 In The Player King, a travelling Shakespearean actor finds himself facing an opening night audience without his company, setting off an existential crisis of tragic proportions. Can the show go on? Should it? Compelled by the power of storytelling, the actor attempts to deliver a solo version of Hamlet, but something is deeply amiss as fantasy and reality start to blend in this celebration of theatrical obsessions, and the quest for the performance of a lifetime…even to the edge of doom. Performed by SIR’s Artistic Director Rodrigo Beilfuss, The Player King is a brand-new script written specifically for SIR by comedian-improviser, and co-creator of Mad TV, Ron Pederson.
