Complete Deaths Show Art

March 23-April 1

Curio Theatre Company
4740 Baltimore Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19143

All 74 onstage Shakespearean deaths in 90 minutes - 75 if you count the ill-favoured fly killed in Titus Andronicus. Roman suicides in Julius Caesar, the death fall of Prince Arthur in King John, the carnage at the end of Hamlet, snakes in a basket in Antony & Cleopatra, Pyramus and Thisbe, young Macduff! Countless stabbings, severed heads, poisonings, mobbings and a smothering - hell Enorbarbus just sits in a ditch and dies from grief. And don't get us started about the pie that Titus serves the Queen of the Goths! THE COMPLETE DEATHS opened in May 2016 at Brighton Festival to acclaim from audiences and critics alike, and has been delighting audiences around the world since then - a solemn, sombre, life-affirming and sublimely funny tribute to Shakespeare and death.

Rachel O'Hanlon-Rodriguez
She Was A Conquistawhore


Quig's Pub
Plays and Players Theatre
1714 Delancey St
Philadelphia, PA 19103

March 31-April 1

They say the Conquistawhore drinks her weight in whiskey, brawls her own vagina (which sounds fun, but he is a true madman), and wanders the Wild West – or is it just the Main Line of Philly? Come find out in this developmental sharing performed by Rachel O’Hanlon-Rodriguez and directed by Cat Ramirez. This experimental blend of standup comedy and theatrical poetry weaves a legend to poke fun at (and holes into) our internalized oppression while celebrating our ability to transform.
