For our second performance in our new space, THE READY (which we share with the awesome Theatre Y) Red Tape Theatre proudly presents Bertolt Brecht’s ROUND HEADS AND POINTED HEADS. Described as “a tale of horror” by Brecht himself, the play is a satirical parable about the fictitious country of Yahoo, where the rulers maintain control by setting people with round heads against those with pointed heads. As the flames of a race war between round and pointed heads brews, the people of Yahoo are distracted from the reality of their poverty and the oppressive forces caused by class stratification.
The show is directed by Artistic Director and Jeff Nominated director Max Truax* and will feature original music from two-time Jeff Award Winning composer Nicholas Tonozzi, their third collaboration after the highly successful THE MOTHER (Oracle Theatre) and last year’s YERMA, co-produced with Theatre Y.
The cast includes:
Maryam Abdi, Ambrose Cappucio, Ben Chang, Casey Chapman*, Nora King, Peter Laughlin, Diana Lee, Felix Mayes, Emily Nichelson*, Brandon Rivera, Caleb Roitz, Kelsey Shipley*, Stephanie Shum*, and Ann Sonneville
