Runtime: 2 Hours
Wrapping up Mad Cat Theatre Company’s 12th season, is yet another World Premiere, this time a play written by Jessica Farr and Paul Tei. The Hamlet Dog and Pony Show is a deconstruction of Shakespeare’s tragedy, “Hamlet”. Their take not only allots the age old question “To be or not to be” but contemplates whether or not the question is even still valid in today’s hypermodern society. Through the use of music, multimedia and puppetry, The Hamlet Dog and Pony Show, directed by Paul Tei, is a tragedy of errors that remains in dialogue with the dead in order to build a method for which to go on living.
Featuring: Ken Clement, Troy Davidson, Giordan Diaz, Jessica Farr, Carey Brianna Hart, Christopher A. Kent, Emilie Paap, Theo Reyna and Brian Sayre, and with voice of James Samuel Randolph as the Ghost of Hamlet’s father. With Designs by: Matt Corey* (Sound), Melissa Santiago Keenan (Lights), Leslye Menshouse (Costumes) and Sean McClelland (Scenic).

Blow Me by Jessica Farr and Directed by Paul Tei is a world premiere that opens August 15th and runs thru September 1st.
Blow Me is an unbridled take on the life of fashion icon, Isabella Blow. Blow was fashion editor at Tatler and Vogue for many years, leaving an indelible mark on the fashion world that still remains current today. Suffering from Bi-Polar disorder, Isabella attempted suicide 7 times before finally succeeding. In Blow Me, we follow Isabella down the rabbit hole as her life comes to an end, which is only just the beginning of the ride. Isabella retells her own story as only she could remember it, through spectacle.
Born in 2000, Mad Cat Theatre Company’s mission is to provide theatre that provokes its audience to re-imagine its surrounding world. To promote debate by creating work that illuminates the darker regions of our mental and emotional landscape. To sniff out and ultimately create brazen stories that explore the hypermodernity of society. Mad Cat Theatre Company is committed to deconstructing itself and its environment through original works, adaptations, multi-media, live music, dance, puppetry and poetry.
