Richmond Triangle Players will re-open after a six-month hiatus with two “pre-season” events:

 

Marjie Southerland

In the Virginia premiere of Carolyn Gage’s The Second Coming of Joan of Arc, Joan returns to share her experiences with the church, state, military and the misogyny behind male institutions. It’s directed by Chelsea Burke and features Marjie Southerland in the title role (she most recently played the title role in Virginia Rep’s Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad). The show opens 10/1 and will run for 6 performances with streaming options available.

 

After performing dozens of shows over the last decade, Georgia Rogers Farmer has the honor of being the most popular cabaret artist in RTP’s history. Her new one is called Virtually Insane starring Georgia Rogers Farmer and Joshua Wortham (Worthan is her musical director/accompanist). It runs 10/15-17 and streaming options will be available.

 

All performances will take place at the theatre with limited capacity and other safety protocols in place, including masks in the theatre. Tickets for the live performances go on sale 9/10 at 10:00 am. Streaming tickets will be available later this month.

 

Taking things to the streets, 5th Wall Theatre is presenting Porch Plays. Three teams of artists who have been living together in quarantine will be performing:

 

Matt Bloch and Rachel Rose Gilmour will present “Sugar” by Matt Bloch, a meet-cute scene of a person asking for a sugar caddy that inspires a discourse about the local trade agreements of sugar. Matt will also be doing the prologue from Shakespeare’s R&J, an adaption by Joe Calarco.

 

Kim Jones-Clark and David Clark will be performing “Matterhorn” by Rich Orloff. Stuck in a never-ending line at Disneyland, a husband and wife are just on the verge of killing each other — until they devise a novel solution to their marital woes.

 

Chandler Hubbard, Chelsea Burke, Adam Turk, and Daniel Daigle will be performing an excerpt from “Akeldama, a quarantine play” by Chandler Hubbard.

 

The event will happen on 9/15 at 5:30 (running time about 45 minutes) on the porch of Deborah Carlotti and Ken Kolb, 1517 Hanover Ave. People should wear a mask and bring a chair and refreshments if they like. They can sit on the sidewalk or across the street at Lombardy Park sidewalk. FREE!
