“Shakespeare or Space Wars” Free Outdoor Theatre Mash-Up | Summer 2017

Each year the Samuel Peaches Peripatetic Players travel the Bay Area with FluxWagon, their folding mobile stage. In 2017’s adventure, the Players can’t decide whether to tackle the high art tragedy of “Romeo and Juliet” or that other popular tale of star-crossed destiny, “Star Wars: A New Hope.

So they’ve put together a ridiculously charming outdoor theater mash-up called Shakespeare or Space Wars which is on a summer tour to Bay Area parks, July 8-August 13, 2017.

The shows running time is about 80 minutes. Bring your lawn chairs and coolers of snacks, along with the whole family for an afternoon of outdoor theatrical delight.
