About the Event
Carlotta-B-from-1593 is mad as hell and she’s not gonna take it anymore!
Look, Elizabethan England was no walk in the park, but for the ‘Ultimate Feminist Shakespearean Contemporary Leading Lady’, contemporary life is riddled with mixed messages about how to behave as a boss lady should.
In PETTY TYRANT, Carlotta has done the deed and ditched the words to become a man of action.
This time, our Shakespearean Superhero decides to take on the men, and take down the gerontocracy, villain by villain. Patricidal Politician Brutus, Richard the Deformed Dictator, Powerless Prince Hamlet, Lear the Defeatist Daddy, and of course, that Geriatric Ham, Prospero—all sampled in a single night!
What can possibly wrong when we stop speaking truth to power? Shakespeare knew. Carlotta-B will show you. PETTY TYRANT, The pen is Mighty, but the sword is a Sword.
