asyoulikeit FINAL poster image

From a rigid court to a whimsical forest, William Shakespeare’s As You Like It is a story of spontaneous love and friendships strengthened by adventure. In an imaginative new take, fraught with gender confusion and sexual tension, Rarely Pure “winterizes” this classic as an ideal kick-start to the New Year, sharing human struggle and triumph in a frosty, mysitcal wonderland.

As You Like It

Rarely Pure Theatre’s upcoming production!!

“Were Lovers”

An exploration of the manifestation of love through the works of Charles L. Mee.

 Love can be a filthy, beautiful, ugly, wonderful, sickening thing and as irrational and painful as it may sometimes be there are those who still find themselves caught in the pain and pleasures of it. These are their stories.

“The Pillowman” by Martin McDonagh

RP announces our next production, “The Pillowman” by Martin McDonagh.

Katurian the writer stays in and writes stories. That’s it. Brilliant but often grotesque tales, shaped by a twisted childhood experiment conducted by his own parents. Now Katurian has been blindfolded and taken out of his home to face questioning at the hands of two brutal detectives. Are Katurian and his brother, Michal, responsible for the murder of three children? Martin McDonagh’s play is a harrowing and blackly funny meditation on the tricky power of words to shape the world.

“I suppose I walk that line between comedy and cruelty because I think one illuminates the other. We’re all cruel, aren’t we? We are all extreme in one way or another at times and that’s what drama, since the Greeks, has dealt with.”

-Martin McDonagh
