Theatre Project will present NYC-based Cloud of Fools Theater Company’s production of its original play The Whistling Mortician, September 6 – 8, 2013, at its theatre located at 45 West Preston Street, Baltimore.
Incorporating dance, music and theater with whimsy and precision, The Whistling Mortician is the story of a poor Prussian laborer living in the hotbed of 1870’s Alsace-Lorraine. One fateful day following the Franco-Prussian war, he whistles the wrong national anthem up and down the streets of his town – and directly into trouble. Fleeing to far-off countries and meeting colorful characters along the way, he finds himself drawn towards the work that will define his life.
Using sticks and foam-board, the world of The Whistling Mortician will traverse whole continents and oceans as it unfurls the whimsical journey of our hero. Music, death, war, and waltzing: the play asks just how significantly a simple tune can change a life.
The Whistling Mortician will engage audiences with its seamless blend of physical comedy, rigorous ensemble-work, and incredibly dynamic rhythm-and all with rich metaphysical undertones to boot. Cloud of Fools Theater Company is rooted in its practical explorations of many physical-theater traditions of the past, for a fresh, dynamic, actor-centered theater of the present and future.
Appropriate for all ages.
