Isadoora Theatre Company will reprise its staged reading of Bloody Poetry, a Howard Brenton play offered last month in collaboration with Woodwalk Gallery and Theater M. Bloody Poetry begins as a bumpy carriage journey through the Alps and, drawing on elements of historical fact, follows Percy and Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, and Claire Clairmont through the romance and radicalism of hedonistic Victorian-era Europe as imagined by Brenton.
Directed by Henry Timm and read from the stage by Isadoora favorites David Clowers, Ed DiMaio, Chris Milton, Michelle Reinhard, Chris Weidenbacher and newcomer Donna Johnson, Bloody Poetry is free and open to the public (please note that the script contains some strong language and mature situations; may not be appropriate for children under 12).
As is Isadoora tradition, each reading will be followed by a talk back audience discussion. Performances are set for Oct. 26, 7 pm, at Town Hall Bakery in Jacksonport, and Oct. 28, 7:30 pm, at Third Avenue Playhouse in Sturgeon Bay. Admission is free. For more information visit isadoora.com.
