As many of you may know, this year the Provisional Players celebrate their 30th anniversary.
To celebrate this occasion, we thought of a special play that can bring together as many former and current Provisional Players members on the Tübingen BrechtBauTheater stage as possible!
„But how?“, you ask. „I´m currently in Hannover/Berlin/Edinburgh/Tasmania/Bempflingen!“
First, the play:
We are currently working on adapting „The Dead Eyes of London“, a crime novel by Edgar Wallace, into a comedy stage version. It will be done in the style of the 1960s/1970s film adaptions that some of you may be familiar with and should be a blast for all involved.
„That’s all well and good“, you say, „but, still, HOW can you bring people from Hamburg/Munich/Moscow/The Cayman Islands/Albstadt together?“
We´ll have a core ensemble of 5 to 6 people from the Tübingen area who’ll play the main characters who appear frequently in the play. Those people will be rehearsing according to the usual BrechtBau theater schedule.
And: We will have around 20 juicy minor roles and cameos for people who come from further away or can’t come to regular rehearsals. Those „external“ actors wouldn´t have to come to rehearsals until the very last days before performances.
PLUS: For those of you who can´t come at all, but would still like to participate: We’re trying to work in a few video and audio effects that you may be able to record in advance.
Here is the schedule (not including regular rehearsals for the main roles):
Saturday 18.11.: Rehearsal (it would be great if everyone could attend here)
Sunday, 19.11.: All-day rehearsal
Monday 20.11.: Technical runthrough at 18;00
Tuesday 21.11.: Dress rehearsal
Wednesday, 22.11.: Performance 1
Thursday, 23.11.: Performance 2
Friday, 24.11.: Performance 3
Saturday, 25.11.: Big anniversary bash in the late afternoon with dancing, reminiscing, drinks, good food and general merriment
