The Peripatetic Players perform Shakespeare!

The Peripatetic Players have debuted a new performance!

While Samuel Peaches was busy pining away, singing himself love-songs and composing eloquent missives to woo Blueberry Starshine (that he was unlikely to ever deliver), Mdme Directrix was charged with preparing the Players for their latest performance. The Bull Valley Roadhouse had requested a special one-night performance in honor of their 3rd anniversary party, and Mr. Peaches and company were happy to oblige. Rehearsals were undertaken in Samuel’s absence, and the Players arrived on the appointed night, November 8, 2015, eager to debut their latest production. SPPP R&J Collage

But the Players had not correctly understood Samuel’s instructions. Expecting to perform Mdme D’s new Viking play, “Shakes Spear,” the Players were surprised but delighted to learn that Mr Peaches thought them ready to undertake the work of one of the greatest dramatists in the English language.

With aplomb, Samuel Peaches and the Peripatetic Players made their inimitable way through the tale of star-crossed lovers in about 30 minutes, playing to a standing-room-only crowd who cheered and threw money (literally!) at the bows.

We’ll have to ask Mr Peaches if his inspiration to tackle Shakespeare came from the Players’ improvised Hamlet that was offered on a whim at the Last Hurrah party for Main Street Theatre, the Players’ first rehearsal space, located in San Francisco’s Excelsior district.

Thumper isn't sure of the plot, but succeeds in looking rather guilty as a winged Claudius.

Where will the Players appear next? We’re not sure, but we’ll be sure to let you know!

Stay tuned for a new, all-Peripatetic website, where all the Players’ antics can come together under one virtual roof.
