Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale - An old tale in modern times

Tuesday • January 22 • 6-7 p.m.
The Oasis Theatre • 3205 Calle Marie, Suite A • Santa Fe

On January 22, Brenda Lynn Bynum, Artistic Director of The Oasis Theatre Company, will discuss her approach to Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. Taking this classic play of love, jealousy, separation and redemption, and setting it in a modern context, gives us the opportunity to view the universal themes and timeliness of Shakespeare’s “Old Tale.” The production updates the play to 1955 in Chicago’s Little Sicily and then moves 16 years (as per Shakespeare) to Bohemia with a vibrant 1970’s hippie energy as the backdrop. And you are going to “love” the music! There is something for everyone in this play . . . including a bear!

Performances run January 31 - February 17: Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays @ 7:30 p.m. and Sundays @ 3:00 p.m. at The Oasis Theatre, 3205 Calle Marie, Suite A (next door to Teatro Paraguas).

Doors open at 5:30 pm for light refreshments and conversation before the talk.

For this evening’s TLC talk Kate and Robin will show some Up & Down comedy videos and discuss the process behind their satire writing.

The Big Heartless: A multi-generational new play that explores the wild in all of us.

Tuesday • February 5, 2019 • 6-7 p.m.
Warehouse 21 • 1614 Paseo De Peralta • Santa Fe

The themes and ideas that are explored in The Big Heartless, such as the role that technology plays in our lives today, the effects of isolation on young and old alike, and the critical need to look after each other and the natural world invite in-depth discussion. How does a playwright put all of this together with both humor and gravitas? What is the best way for the director to convey all of these ideas with grace and celerity? And how do you give the script a life on stage?

The Big Heartless’ Playwright Dale Dunn and Director Lynn Goodwin will provide us with an inside look at their playwriting, directing, and production processes, with special attention paid to the issues that attend the production of a new play. 

Performances of The Big Heartless will run from February 14 to March 3 at Warehouse 21.

Doors open at 5:30 pm for light refreshments and conversation before the talk.
