Anything could go wrong. And therein lies the beauty of Taffety Punk Theatre Company’s annual Bootleg Shakespeare.
On July 24, a cast of more than thirty actors will gather at the Folger Theatre. They will bring with them memorized lines, staging ideas, and some costume pieces. They will stage the entire play together at breakneck speed. It will be their first and last rehearsal. Roughly eight hours later, the audience will gather to see what happens.

A pre-Obamacare study from 2009 found that a large percentage of Americans are one serious illness away from financial ruin. This gripping hour-long monologue by writer-performer Michael Milligan details precisely how it might happen… Milligan is riveting, conveying a fascinating mix of decency, heartbreak, and impotent fury. —Chicago Reader
