Fellow independent theatre makers at Virginia Plain are storming into the post-shutdown theatre scene with their spin on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
12 actors each prepare two parts, and flip a coin right at the beginning of each performance to find out who will play what.
So what does that have to do with me?
My little (big) COVID-pivot involved completing a Certificate IV in Programming (which was waaaaaaay more work than I thought it would be), and I have plans to study a Diploma in Software Development next year. So in the break, I’m trying to keep up my new skills while going back to my forever love of theatre.
To help audiences get a taste of the Twelfth Night (heads or tails) experience, I’ve made a Cast Generator complete with flipping coin.
