  • Comedy

Lady Happy, a wealthy heiress, rejects societal pressure to take a husband by building a cloistered utopia for unmarried women. The ladies are quite pleased to live free from the threat of marriage. The lords are quite perturbed to be kept out of the fun. And poor Madam Mediator has her hands full trying to keep the estate solvent. Will Lady Happy’s “principles of pleasure” be able to withstand the scrutiny of Princess Principle or the rising cost of flowers? 

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness, didn’t have enough money to try. 

This is a rollicking new adaptation by Heather Meyer, creator of Women’s History Month: The Historical Comedybration (with fabulous prizes) and numerous past Fringe shows. The original 1668 play was written by “Mad Madge” aka Margaret Cavendish, the Duchess of Newcastle (or as she called herself: “the thrice noble, illustrious, and excellent princess, the duchess of Newcastle, Margaret Cavendish”), gets a 21st century facelift for a frothy, face-paced, feminist romp.

The Birth Play Project presents the world premiere of Joel F. Wilshire's AQUELARRES: after the works of Francisco de Goya y Lucientes in the outdoor sanctuary of Edgcumbe Presbyterian Church. 

AQUELARRES (in Spanish: "witch's sabbath") is a political fantasy set during the Spanish Inquisition, and it follows a possible saint, a pair of nuns, and a coven of witches who unwittingly collaborate to overthrow their local government. The play is performed in both English and Spanish, features puppetry, and is a birth story of cosmic proportions - join the Aquelarre. 

Seating is general admission and available either in provided chairs or "groundling" style (on the grass, bring your own picnic blanket). 

AQUELARRES is written by Joel F. Wilshire, directed by Madeline Wall, and produced by Wilshire, Wall, Emma Lai, and Patrick Brien. The production is stage managed by Rebecca Wickert and features design work by Rachel Brees, Robert McGrady, and Soap Curtis. The cast includes Seth Campbell, Mel Fellows, Frankie Goodman, Olivia Kemp, Katelyn McLane, Anya Naylor, Antonia Perez, Dariana Pèrez, and Tia Tanzer. 

Poster design by Kezia Florence Germ.
