Description

Order in the court! Join Carlotta-B-from-1593 in Petty Tyrant. An unorthodox trial of the authorship question and extravagant hallucination of Shakespearean proportions. Welcome to an autocratic universe where silence is violence and controlling the narrative is victory. Is Shakespeare a tyrant? Or is he just… petty? You will decide the verdict, and live jazz band The Executioners will keep time, proving beyond reasonable doubt that the gatekeepers are guilty and the evidence isn’t stacking up. It’s Judge Judy meets The Apprentice with Shakespeare and live jazz. Starring Carlotta-B-from-1593 as Anonymous Chirrullus Battillus: the original badass bitch.
