Capping an exciting sixth season, the Fools take a trip to Grover's Corners and raise Thornton Wilder's Our Town to acrobatic new heights. After great success workshopping the production as part of Arena Stage's Kogod Cradle Series last year, Faction of Fools presents a fully-staged, extended run of Wilder's original text at Gallaudet University in May-June of 2015. With sensitivity to Wilder's use of pantomime, direct address, and metatheatrical commentary, the production applies a Commedia sensibility to re-discover the classical archetypes still familiar in Our Town today. As one audience member said at last year's sneak peek, "I always cry at Our Town. At this I laughed and cried."
