Back in September, I mentioned that our buddy and Fault Line Theatre actor, Blake Segal (Frogs), was developing an evening of Russian Fairy Tales with a team of artists from the Yale School of Drama. Well, the time has finally come! Tickets are now available for Bones in the Basket which will be produced by The Araca Project.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE PLAY
A motley troupe of storytellers burst onto a makeshift stage with a riotous performance of seven classic Russian fairy tales. These wild misfits will act, sing, dance, flirt, beg, borrow, steal; whatever it takes to fill their empty bellies. And they have no interest in stories that end in “happily ever after…” So raise up your glass in a toast and your voice in song, asBones in the Basket invites you to a world of tales filled with startling plot twists, morbid spectacles, and biting humor.
Originally developed for the Yale Cabaret,Bones in the Basket was conceived of by Alexandra Henrikson, directed by Devin Brain, and devised by the company based on Aleksandr Afanas’ev’s collection of Russian fairy tales.
