Theatrix USA and Act One Productions proudly presents a double feature at the Historic Jayhawk Theatre in downtown Topeka. Two theatrical plays written by Mike Broemmel will hit the stage on April 29th, 30th, and May 1st. The double feature includes two, one-actor plays entitled: Taking Tea with the Ripper, starring Paul Escobedo and The Hours of Anne starring Sara Woodyard.
Show Times: Friday, April 29th at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 30th at 8 p.m., and Sunday, May 1st at 6 p.m.
Taking Tea with the Ripper has been described as one of the most twisted and dark character studies of one of the world’s most notorious killers, Jack the Ripper. Take tea with one of history’s most wicked and sadistic minds. Taking Tea with the Ripper is “disturbing … in the most spectacular way.”
The double feature also includes The Hours of Anne chronicles the final day in the life of Queen Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and the first to be beheaded. We sit with Anne during her last hours in the Tower of London. The play begins with Anne at the block and the remarkable speech she gave at that time. Was she put to death in a just manner for defying the English monarch? Or, was she a heroic innocent killed to satisfy the lust of Henry the VIII? Audiences have described The Hours of Anne as “superb,” “captivating,” and “beautifully written.”
The Jayhawk Theatre is located at 720 SW Jackson St., Downtown Topeka. Purchase tickets at WWW.ACT-ONE-PRODUCTIONS.COM
