The Faire

February 7 - March 1, 2014
Fourth Street Theatre

A new play by Crystal Finn
Directed by Aaron Rossini

"Do something real with your life"

 The Faire follows the behind-the-scenes lives of five performers at a Renaissance Faire somewhere in the backwoods of northern California. The Actress, the Fencer, the Virgin, the Old Burnout, and the Witch all have something to lose when they find out attendance is down. This small group of outcasts must band together to stave off their impending irrelevance and fight for their own corner of utopia. The Faire is the frequently hilarious, sometimes tragic tale of the real lives beneath the corsets and coconut boobs.

Runtime: 75 minutes (no intermission)
