FREDERICK, Md.—A new, student-run theater group will put on a series of plays April 24-25 in downtown Frederick.
The Rude Globe will produce three, one-act plays. The performances will be at 7 p.m. at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre, 31 W. Patrick St., in downtown Frederick.
Una Regoje ’18 is directing the first, “The Actor’s Nightmare” by Chris Durang; Abby Tolliver ’16 is directing the second, “Post Wave Spectacular” by Diana Grisanti; and Giovanni Kavota ’13 is directing “An Examination of the Whole Playwright/Actor Relationship Presented as Some Kind of Cop Show Parody” by Greg Kotis.
The Rude Globe organization was named by co-presidents and co-artistic directors Regoje and Tolliver. The group’s named is based on the rude mechanicals—a group of six lower-class, skilled laborers who are amateur actors from Shakespeare's “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”—and the Globe Theatre in London where Shakespeare’s plays were produced.
This is the directing debut for Regoje and Tolliver. Kavota previously directed “Picassa at the Lapin Agile” by Steve Martin.
