In addition to performing an amazing play, this 12th Night project is about the community -- bringing artists and audience together through classical theatre. Through an open discussion with the community, we're on an adventure to answer the following:

* Where do a modern audience and traditional text meet?
* Why is an all-female Shakespeare ensemble important (or IS it important)?
* How can we as performers tell the story with only our bodies and voices -- without relying on modern-day sets and technologies to tell the story for us?

We invite the community to pop into rehearsals and see what we're up to.

welcome to MBCT; Modern but Classical Theatre.

MBCT is currently producing a new adaptation of shakespeare's 12th NIGHT, or WHAT YOU WILL. 5 women play 9 characters in this highly athletic, tongue-in-cheek performance influenced by commedia dell'arte, british pantomime, and americana kitchen sink drama.
