In 2007-2008 we began a dialogue with our audiences through a series of post-show discussions, guest panels and Semantic Labs. The positive response has encouraged us to expand the conversation online. I’m pleased now to welcome you to the Red Tape Theatre Company blog!
After reading hundreds of plays, narrowing down to a list of 15, then tossing the list out and starting from scratch, we are pleased to announce our 2008-2009 season. Red Tape Theatre Company will be producing Lope de Vega’s The Dog in the Manger in October 2008 and Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People in May 2009.
Red Tape has long been interested in writing our own work and will be taking our first step this season by creating original adaptations of both plays. At present I’m happily buried in books about the Spanish Golden Age and the rise of the Inquisition. We must gain a greater understanding of de Vega’s time to find the play’s connections to our own. Members of the company, and some special guests, will be asked to write on our blog as the adaptation process continues. We look forward to sharing our findings with you!
