About Clarence and Me
Sunday, August 28, 2016 through Wednesday, September 07, 2016
 
The idea for ABOUT CLARENCE AND ME was born during celebrated television writer, Walter Jones’ and writer composer, Scott Hiltzik’s chance meeting on a bus.  Sitting next to each other on the five hour ride from New York City to Boston in July, 2003, the two writers recognized their shared interests.  As New England scenery passed by, Coltrane, classical piano music and theater were discussed, ideas were thrown back and forth, personal stories shared.  By the time the Greyhound arrived at South Station the story was set, and their collaboration underway

Additional Notes:
This play is about an ensemble of female actors, who arrive at thetheatre to begin rehearsals on Shakespeare's Henry V. Little do theyknow they will encounter an ensemble of a male dominant Henry Vproduction that is already there in intense rehearsals. The men cannotcome to terms with the fact ladies are trying to run the show, andwhen a thespian battle of the sexes takes place, the female cast islead by Mary V. Mary is transformed from the passive pawn she was inthe hands of her husband in Shakespeare's 16th Century original HenryV into a modern fierce, ferocious and feisty Amazonian warrior, whosettles for nothing less than pure victory in this riveting modernadaptation. In 2016, Mary does not beat around the bush and is the onewho wears the pants. Queen Mary is not afraid of a good old fist fightand when both sides refuse to back down the battle takes some uglyturns. These male and female thespians-turned-gangster artists arelivid about having to share space and resources and about theimplications that their genders' have on their artistic expression andcreative work.
