Imagination Compact Artists Reveal #23 — Brian Pracht

What is The Imagination Compact?

And how can learn more about Flux’s Misdummer?

Brian Pracht

Playwright, The Mechanicals, May 19th

History with Flux: Demetrius in Midsummer Night’s Dream, frequent participant in Flux Sundays and Retreat 2007

1. What is your favorite Shakespeare play? OTHELLO

2. What is your favorite line of text? “Gertrude, do not drink.” from HAMLET Act 5, Scene 2

3. Does Shakespeare influence your writing at all? If by “influence” you mean “stealing”, then yes.

4. Fairies: colorful playmates or dangerous tricksters? Dangerous playmates

5. If the Flux Capacitor made time travel possible when the DeLorean reached 88mph, what do you think would happen if Flux Theatre Ensemble got theatre up to 88mph? I can’t tell you; it would disrupt the space-time continuum. Oh, what the hell. All I can tell you is: don’t trust Heather.

6. Complete this sentence: “It’s too late to go back now, I’ll just have to do without my _______” Cossacks

7. How many licks does it take…? How much alcohol’s involved…?

8. Would you rather have a beer with Richard Burbage or William Kemp? Definitely Kemp. Think about it. Shakespeare wrote HAMLET, OTHELLO, RICHARD III, and LEAR for Burbage, so, Dick’s probably not the happiest drunk.
