Now Now Oh Now
The Rude Mechanicals are known for their unusual, highly collaborative performances, and their latest, Now Now Oh Now, is certainly in keeping with that ethos. It’s an interactive promenade piece, which means that the small audience (limited to only 30 per performance) should wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to roam around a bit. Also, they might want to bring an umbrella if coming on a rainy day.
The show involves puzzles, the science of evolution, Dungeons and Dragons, LARPing (Live Action Role Playing), and more issues and topics that might or might not be related.
As is the case with most Rude Mechs works, Now Now Oh Now is a collaborative piece, created by the entire cast and crew (with staging by Shawn Sides and writing by Hannah Kenah). It’s evolved a lot since beginning life as a workshop performance called CL1000P, and the cast predicts it’ll continue to evolve as the run goes on. The performance features Robert Fisher, Thomas Graves, Hanna Kenah, Lana Lesley, Jason Liebrecht, and Shawn Sides.
