Theater

MAKING MAYHEM

by

Fiasco Theater, a cohort of six Brown alums, practices a frolicsome form of poor theater. On a stage, bare except for two blocks and a trunk, they gleefully undertake Shakespeare’s late-period play—a giddy welter of poisoning, beheading, cross-dressing, betrayal, and a scene of recognition so convoluted as to make the imagination boggle.

Saturdays, Sundays, 2:30 p.m.; Tuesdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Aug. 27. Continues through Jan. 15, 2011
