1615. Venice. A cosmopolitan city populated by people from many nations and predilections. Entwined in strange ways are the intriguing lives of a once notorious woman who now masquerades as a nun, a couturier who wears his own gowns, his brainy African lover, a mysterious Don Juan, a violin-playing novice and a 60-year-old virgin dressmaker. An unusual comedy with captivating twists, Brocade will amuse and surprise.
Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. A talkback will be held after the 3:00 p.m. performance on Sunday, February 9th with the playwright, violinist and cast.
The runtime is approximately two hours, plus one 15-minute intermission.
