July 23
Over-the-Rhine

For all you John and Jane Waynes out there, stories of perseverance and survival!

The mission of True Theatre is to bring together a wide variety of people to share stories in an effort to create community, encourage discussion, and remind everyone that ALL of us have stories to tell with unique insights and broad appeal. Though storytelling can take on many forms, True Theatre realizes that what great stories have in common are their power to hold attention, slow time, and capture the imagination. They may redden cheeks, make eyes water, and elicit eruptions of laughter. They take you somewhere. Although great storytelling is not limited to true, personal stories, True Theatre believes that these real moments of our lives, from the mundane to the extraordinary, give both the speaker AND the listener the ultimate sense of being part of a larger community than they were aware. Come join us for an evening of True Theatre …where time slows down and we can listen.

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES
Presented by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company
July 20-Aug. 12
Downtown

Reviews: Enquirer | CityBeat |

The legendary detective Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson are on the job to investigate the mysterious case of the “hound of hell” that stalks the moors. This fast-paced farcical adaptation of the classic novel is performed by only three actors tackling dozens of roles.  Physical humor and visual gags will make this production a laugh out loud treat this summer.  Will the courageous detective and his men survive the mystery of Baskerville Hall…and each other? The game is afoot in the regional premiere of this exciting adaptation of THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES.

Directed by Michael Evan Haney

Cast: Jeremy Dubin, Nicholas Rose & Brent Vimtrup
