Uncommon Bard: “Witty Fools and Foolish Wits”

Uncommon Bard: “Witty Fools and Foolish Wits”

Join the company members of Odd’s Bodkins for an evening of hilarity and shenanigans! All your favorite Bodkins flex their comedy muscles with witty banter from “Much Ado About Nothing” and “Twelfth Night,” with physical comedy from “The Comedy of Errors” and “Romeo and Juliet,” and with great treatises on the insanity of life from such iconic clowns as Autolycus from “The Winter’s Tale,” Launce from “The Two Gentlemen of Verona,” Bottom from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and the Fool from “King Lear.”

This night’s program will also feature a preview from “The Tragedy of Tom Riddle” a world premiere being produced by Odd’s Bodkins in May of 2018.

All this and much more! Sure to set the table in a roar! See you there you varlets!
