Most of the cast of Fixing King John and some friends have agreed to perform two public readings of the first draft by Kirk Lynn, and we invite you to be a part of the development process as we prepare for its world premiere production in 2015. Fixing Timon of Athens is the second play in Rude Mechs' Fixing Shakespeare series. The first installment, Fixing King John, was a huge experiment on Kirk Lynn's part executed with aplomb by Madge Darlington and a beautiful cast of 10. We invite you to stick around and give us your feedback in an environment that involves booze and standing around after each of the performances. Join us!
