Machine Theatre is very excited to be developing two new theatre pieces to share with Charlotte in the new year: Mum's the Word and Cornelius and Bartholomew. These two short pieces will be premiered in Charlotte in February and March 2010. Mum's the Word is a pitch black comedy about America's experience of African Civil War written and directed by myself and Cornelius and Bartholomew is a new work developed by Barney, Barbi and Robert that is unlike anything Charlotte audiences have seen on local stages. In it, Cornelius and Bartholomew, two victorian era scientists, are giving a public demonstration of their experimental prowess. Their epic incompetence spells disaster for themselves and hilarity for their audience.
These will serve to keep our rabid audience sated until our fully realized production of ThomThom (act's one and two) in May 2010. Yes! We've revamped Act One and have an utterly insane Act Two with which to unleash total enlightenment AND befuddled hysteria on your sweet and tender psyches!
We have been working overtime and sleeping in shifts, and we've been doing it for you! You, the brave citizens of Charlotte, deserve the most forward thinking and innovative entertainments to tickle your funny bone and stimulate your pineal gland...soul power is what you want and soul power ye shall have!
