A Most Pleasant Evening with Vagabond

This year, Vagabond Productions takes its audience back to the Renaissance, but not for a visit with the familiar playwright you might expect. It isn't very often directors and theatre troupes venture into the realm of the Renaissance without Shakespeare being involved in some respect. This year, however, Dr. Greg Doran and the cast and crew are presenting a show that has no known author.

Don't mistake that for meaning there won't be familiarity. The classic Renaissance comedic stylings and flowing iambic pentameter are still very much present and accounted for. Vagabond is looking to take this show and run with it in an over-the-top fashion so uproarious laughter will be an unavoidable pleasantry. If you liked The Princess Bride, you'll love A Most Pleasant Comedy of Mucedorus.

If you would like to catch a classic, family-friendly Renaissance-style show you have never seen before, make sure to head over to the Faculty Lounge in the SDU Main Building at UPEI from March 12 to 16. Doors open at 7:00 pm for a 7:30 pm start. Admission is pay-what-you-can, but space is limited. There are no pre-sale tickets available.
