Nope, despite the title, it’s NOT about grease monkeys in an upstate NY auto repair shop. Instead, Eric Hissom’s fast, funny, slyly anachronistic, and scarily relevant new comedy about the insanity of trying to create theatre in the midst of a plague (sound familiar?) takes place on a snowy January evening in 1612 London. A last-minute illness forces a spear-carrier in Shakespeare’s acting troupe into a major role in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. And, on a night fraught with political and romantic intrigue, he frantically attempts to rehearse for an impending command performance before the King. This hilarious world premiere will be presented for two weekends only – Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm – from April 20 through 30 at the award-winning Bridge Street Theatre, 44 West Bridge Street in Catskill, NY.
