The Robbers: All-Female Cast Performs German Classic
Strangeloop Theatre's all-female cast plays the roles of sons, fathers, kings and knaves in this modern retelling of the revolutionary German classic The Robbers. This original Strangeloop adaptation of 18th-century playwright Friedrich Schiller's influential drama chronicles the conflict between two ambitious siblings fighting for their inheritance and the power to remake the world in their own image. Murder and thievery abound, and only serve to increase the rampant discord. Brad Gunter directs this innovative production at The Side Project Theatre.

About the Ticket Supplier: Strangeloop TheatreThough we officially incorporated as Strangeloop Theatre in October of 2008, it was in the early part of that year that a core group of us started meeting up to discuss creating a theatre company we could call home. In June of 2008, we did a one-night staging of Welcome to the Moon (and other plays) by John Patrick Shanley as our first performance, because we could do a collection of short pieces using multiple directors and actors within the group. It was a wonderful first endeavor and helped to further strengthen a sense of community within the group.
That sense of community helped us to grow over the course of our first two years -- staging work that allows a number of voices to participate in the theatrical process. In addition to producing strong work by well-known playwrights, such as Brian Friel's Living Quarters, we have also shown a commitment to working with theatre artists of every discipline in the creation of new and original work, including our world-premiere adaptation of Ferdinand Raimund's The Millionaire Farmer, our holiday cabaret shows and our short play workshop series, Loopshop.
