FREE Neo-Commedia Workshops in Advance of Casting



THE DECKCHAIRS (or, Make the Titanic Great Again)

by Sid Feldman

directed by Wm. Bullion



The Conspirators are seeking fearless, physical, high-energy actors to take part in a workshop series in advance of casting for our next production, The Deckchairs. Actors will learn “The Style": an explosively emotional and very physical Neo-Commedia performing style using exaggerated makeup and costume, with movements punctuated by live percussion. Think highly disciplined chaos; a coke-fueled clown nightmare with an apéritif of Kathakali and a soupçon of Kabuki. All who are interested in being cast are highly encourage to participate. Those who are simply curious are equally welcome.


Synopsis: All looks grim in the First Class Salon of the HMS Titanic until Barnum-like huckster D.J. Drumpf crashes the party and vows to "make the Titanic great again"! Neo-commedia punk-theater perpetrators The Conspirators are at it again with the follow-up to their sold out #TrumpShow, The Resistible Rise of Herr Helmut Drumpf.
