The imaginary beasts are proud to present the regional premiere by a fringe company of a thrilling new adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s much-loved novel, "Picnic at Hanging Rock." Written by Tom Wright, this enigmatic take on the Australian classic examines our imaginative longings and fears while weaving a chilling tale of repressed emotions and simmering violence. On St. Valentine’s Day, in the year 1900, a group of students from a girl’s finishing school set out to visit the geological marvel known as Hanging Rock. Three of the party never return. Their disappearance -- and its ultimate unsolvability -- has a peculiar, even devastating, effect on those who are left behind. Told from the perspective of a chorus of school girls who gather to re-enact and make sense of the story, "Picnic at Hanging Rock" takes a potent, poetic peek at what lies beneath. Performed by arrangement with Nick Hern Books. [less-]

Inspired by her decades-long work with prison populations, including on the notorious Riker's Island, Liza Jessie Peterson's timely and urgent one-person show unpacks the human impact of mass incarceration in America. Fearlessly funny, smart and provocative, "The Peculiar Patriot" traces the migration of systemic injustice from the plantation to the prison yard. Betsy LaQuanda Ross, Liza's narrator, is a self-proclaimed "peculiar patriot" who makes regular visits to penitentiaries to boost the morale of her incarcerated friends and family. Betsy is both victim and victor of this country's prison system and her story turns statistics into achingly relatable stories, drawn from the experience of more than 2.5 million people behind bars. Make sure to see "The Peculiar Patriot" at the Emerson Paramount Center's Jackie Liebergott Black Box in Boston. [less-]

Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare", which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one completely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare" has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head down to The Rockwell near Boston for "The Taming of the Shrew", because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]
