Saturday’s opening-night production of Aristophanes’ The Knights, which closes Genesius Guild’s summer season and runs through this weekend, began with a few words from Guild founder – and uncredited Knights scribe – Don Wooten, and it’s hard to imagine the evening commencing on a more charming note.

In episode 72 of Gilligan’s Island, Hollywood director Harold Hecuba pays a visit and the castaways stage a musical version of Hamlet to try to impress him. For Michael King, who has watched all 98 episodes of the show multiple times, that plotline is a metaphor.

The Prenzie Players are so serious about presenting innovative interpretations of Shakespeare’s scripts, they promise audience members “won’t forget our shows, ever.” Pretty lofty standards for a small group of Quad Cities actors who hold performances in rented found spaces (currently the Rock Island Housing Authority building) and use minimal props, costumes, staging, and production.

“And dream we will, for we are in so odd a world that just to live is to dream.” – Segismundo, Life Is a Dream

 

In his aptly titled Life Is a Dream, playwright Pedro Calderon de la Barca suggests that even if life is no more real that our sleeping stories, the Golden Rule still applies. Actions and relationships still have pertinence, and the status of an individual is defined by the opinions of those around him. Calderon’s poetic 1636 play continues this weekend as part of the University of Iowa’s 2003 Mainstage season.

Witches, Murder, and Gold Shoes: Genesius Guild’s "Macbeth"

In this weather, I pity the actors in Genesius Guild’s production of Macbeth. In addition to the fact they’re on stage wearing three layers of clothing and toting swords, shows are performed at Rock Island’s Lincoln Park outdoor theatre, which draws little breeze, lots of bugs, and, of course, heat. Though these aren’t ideal conditions for actors, or for audience members, people willing to brave the heat for three hours and put on the bug spray will be more than pleased to see an incredibly well-done yet traditional version of one of Shakespeare’s great tragedies.
