What a great 2017 tour! The Peripatetic Players took Shakespeare or Space Wars to Alameda, Oakland, San Francisco, Berkeley, Port Costa, Santa Clara, San Mateo, and hither and yon and back again for 12 performances this July and August.
Shakespeare or Space Wars at Franklin Park, Alameda, on July 23, 2017.
We performed for more than 1300 people, some of whom may have been actual Jedi knights, and about 20 dogs! For a while, a spaceman and a lion who had been separated from their families joined our merry band.

We were a Staff Pick in the East Bay Express, were featured on ABC-7 News’s Hoodline segment, and chronicled in the Santa Clara Weekly.

And now the Peripatetic Players have packed up our trunks for the summer and hunkered down for their autumnal naps, all cozy inside FluxWagon, our folding mobile stage…
Here’s FluxWagon arriving at Precita Park in San Francisco!
(who is writing this in their sleep, one wonders?)
This monster never sleeps, but can give you a monster’s-eye view of the monster lair under the stage.
…but we’ll have to wake up and move out soon, because FluxWagon will be hitting the road this October and November with a new play, Elixir of Life, produced by our very good friends at the theatre company Idiot String. You may even recognize some of the actors as the Peripatetic Players’ friends and fans!
Read more about Elixir of Life here.
And stay tuned! The Players will be back throughout the year with lots of fun projects. What sorts of creative projects do you think the Peripatetic Players should take on before our next summer tour?
