Feast of Fools at the Lab Theater
Feast of Fools is a rich theatrical exploration into the role of the fool throughout history told by Interact Theater, a 40-member ensemble of actors with and without disabilities. The work launches from the medieval feast of fools—the one-day-a-year when court jesters, village clowns, and other fools had free reign to speak and act out with impunity. This mini-revolution got bawdy, bold, and blasphemous, and was forbidden by the Council of Basel in 1431. Feast of Fools is conceived and directed by Interact Founder and Artistic Director, Jeanne Calvit. Nationally celebrated actor/playwright/storyteller Kevin Kling, also an actor with disabilities, joins Feast as playwright and lead actor. Read more about sponsorship opportunities here!
