“Unspoken: Shakespeare’s Personae in Peril” at Hollywood Fringe

Get your tickets today for Blaire Baron Larsen’s original script, which was plucked from 150 applicants for the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival Scholarship Award, “for its themes of social marginalization, literacy preservation, and the play’s homage to the life of a stage actor,” says the playwright. “Our multi-cultural cast ranges from actors, ages 12 to 60, and you don’t often see that range onstage.”

Featuring performances by Larsen (AKA Miss Blaire), LADC teaching artists Will Gressman and Kila Packett, and LADC student Players Nadia Trinidad and Michael Goodman, Unspoken was originally conceived for Shakespeare Youth Festival LA, Fall 2015. Also featured in this production are Keith Barber, Ida Darvish, Brian Graves, Juliette Jeffers, Rochelle Leffler, and Brandon Nagle.

The play, directed by award-winning theatre veteran Matthew Singletary, features various minor Shakespearean “characters” held inexplicably in an Actor’s Greenroom until the discovery that they could be permanently cut unless their relevance is justified at a Tribunal. “It’s a bittersweet comedy, whose noteworthy theme embraces all marginalized people and groups having to claim their right to exist in a rapidly intolerant society,” affirms Singletary.
