Preview: The Last Unicorn

For those of you who aren't fans of the fantasy classic, The Last Unicorn, Promethean Theatre Ensemble has a great story for you. For those of you who are fans, you'll know exactly what I mean.

In their first full-length original play, Promethean turns to the loving care of adaptor/director Edward Rutherford. this project has been a labor of love for the ensemble member. Since the company's inception four years ago, Rutherford has been lobbying for the company to adapt his childhood favorite. But it wasn't until he produced a script that the project began to go anywhere. But once he did...

This production is a masterpiece in storytelling-theatre. Rutherford uses the stage as a blank canvas and splashes the colors of dozens of characters across the set. Multiple actors playing multiple roles, popping in and out of the story and narrative, donning masks and different costumes makes for a truly imaginative journey. And for a special treat act now and book tickets for opening weekend for a chance to meet the novel's author, Peter S. Beagle.

You can follow the progress of the project at The Last Uniblog.
