Phaedra's Love
San Francisco, California, Fall 2012 - Do It Live Productions is launching its second season with Phaedra's Love, Sarah Kane's disturbed reinvention of the Phaedra myth. Director Ben Landmesser is gearing up to scathingly expose our modern world to what Sarah Kane calls "her comedy," coming to Bindlestiff Studios October 27th.

"When the vandals sacked Rome, they chiseled all the noses and penises off the statues. That's what Sarah Kane's done to this myth" explains director Ben Landmesser. Do It Live's designers are mashing up the old world with the new to let audiences lob off a Roman nose of their very own. Spread out your hands, and see what you catch!

"All the characters in Phaedra's Love talk about love, but they can't express it,' says Artistic Director Will Hand. "All the incest, violence, and despair is Kane's emphasis on how far this emptiness can twist you."

SF's ambitious new theater company, Do It Live, has been lauded for its aggressive treatment of Shakespeare and Shepard alike. "An ambitious and solid feat of theater," Henry the Sixth, Richard Ciccarone, SF Appeal. "A darkly comical jazz noir, by capable newcomers Do It Live, " Suicide in B Flat, Robert Avila, SFBG. These scrappy insurrectionists are delivering another dramatic pile-driver in the wrestling arena of underground theatre, and this sanguine offering is the perfect opener to their second season, aptly entitled "Vandalize The Classics."

"Vandalize The Classics" continues into 2013 with Gogol Dossiers, Sean Owens' mumblecore redux of the classic Russian farce, "The Inspector General," deviously devised with the Do it Live troupe.
