The Denison Fringe Festival presents “Something Wicked: Excerpts from Macbeth,” written by Sophia Menconi ’90 and Sarah Wilson ’20. “Something Wicked” is an abridged reimagining of William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” with a focus on how we try to go on in the face of grief.
When a small group of theatre artists programmed some alternative work on the periphery of the inaugural Edinburgh Festival in Scotland in 1947, they ignited the “fringe festival” movement, fostering exciting, non-traditional, and limits-expanding theatre around the world. The Denison Fringe will include a series of diverse original performances by students and faculty, guests, and student organizations and celebrate the theatre-making of Denisonians. It also will include, on Saturday, April 28, a staged reading of George S. Kaufman & Marc Connelly’s “Beggar on Horseback,” the first play produced on the Ace Morgan stage, in 1956, as we say good-bye to our home of more than sixty years.
