Commedia Beauregard has returned to the
world of fine art for another series of plays translated from
paintings. This time we feature the works of Francisco Goya. Six
locally & nationally recognized Twin Cities playwrights and six
talented directors bring forth creations based on works such as:
"The Colossus", "The Chinchillas", "Out Hunting for Teeth", "Celestina
y Maja", "The Incantation", and "Clothed Maja" & "Nude Maja".
Poole, Baldwin Scripts Honored for Goya
"Master Works: The Goya Plays" was a huge
success, and the audience surveys have been tallied giving us the
privilege of presenting honors to two of our playwrights. Tom
Poole's play, The Chinchillas and Trista Baldwin's play
For Celestina and Maja on Balcony were selected by audience
members as their favorite and the best translation, respectively.
The Chinchillas, directed by Michael Agnew, was selected
as the Audience Favorite. It starred Clarence Wethern and
Michael Venske as actors on an absurd gig. It also featured
Kate Greenwood Gunther in a silent role.
For Celestina and Maja on Balcony, directed by Christopher
O. Kidder, was selected as the play that best captured the essence
of the painting upon which it was based. Based on the painting
"Celestina y Maja", the play revolved around an aging woman's
perceptions of a young woman as she watches an opera. It
starred Katherine Engel and Kate Greenwood Gunther.
