Performance Dates
Back by popular demand after last year's sold-out show! Quattro Scenari: Four Scenes of Foolery is DC's local Commedia dell'Arte Day celebration. Commedia dell'Arte Day is a worldwide theatre celebration that Faction of Fools organizes every February 25th on behalf of the international cultural association SAT. Last year, this included over 60 events on all seven continents—including Antarctica! Theatre companies around the world will be performing their own versions of the same four scenari (or scenes). Contributed by leading Commedia practitioners, the four scenari depict some of the classic situations of Commedia: bragging contests, declarations of love, taunts, tricks, and scenes of grandiose confusion. Directed by Paul Edward Hope, Paul Reisman, and Rachel Spicknall.
