923 S. East Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21224
Come experience Shakespeare's Macbeth like you've never seen before, and help raise money for Cohesion Theatre Company in the process! Cohesion is putting on our biggest most fantastical fundraising event ever, and you are invited to this spectacular evening! There will be food, drinks, music, dancing, raffles, silent auction, and the centerpiece of the evening: Pirate Macbeth!!! Jeff Miller has adapted Shakespeare's classic of power and ambition for the high seas, and we at Cohesion are hoisting the colors high to bring you a pirate-themed evening full of adventure, murder, sea shanties, creatures of the deep, and sirens songs, all in support of the artistic programing of Cohesion Theatre Company!
A limited number of basic ticket packages for the evening start at just $20!!! Regular admission, which includes food, music, performance, dancing, and more starts at $40. Drinks, including beer, wine, soda, and specialty themed cocktails, will be available at a cash bar at the event. Special supporter ticket packages which include drink and raffle tickets start at $50.
The evening begins at 7pm on Saturday, August 18th with a cocktail hour that will include frozen specialty cocktails like the "Keel-Haul": Rita's Italian Ice mixed with rum, as well as local delicacies from neighborhood restaurants, silent auction items from local business and theatres, and live music from the cast of Pirate Macbeth.
About 8pm, the performance of Shakespeare's Pirate Macbeth will begin, as the audience is immersed into the high seas world of Scottish conflicts for the crown, and a mysterious group of sirens and sea creatures who twist the fate of the noble Thane. We'll see who makes it out with their heads intact, and who is forced to walk the plank and face the deep crushing abyss of Davey Jones' Locker!!!
After the show, guests are invited to stay as the party kicks in to high gear with dancing and late night pirate shinanigans as we celebrate the close of Season 4 at Cohesion Theatre Company, and look to the future!
All guests are encouraged to come in their best pirate or sea creature themed regalia!
Join us for one night of amazing pirate adventure and fundraising!!!! ARRRRRR!!!
Cohesion performs in “The Fallout Shelter” at United Evangelical Church (923 S. East Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21224) at the corner of East Avenue and Dillon Street in Canton. Patrons should enter the space through the grey doors on East Avenue.
Season 4: E Pluribus Unum!
In season Four, Cohesion is doubling down on our mission and reflecting on our increasingly fragmented world by selecting pieces that deal broadly with the theme of E pluribus unum. Our goal as creators is to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate, therefore we selected a broad range of plays that ask us as a community to examine the poetics, politics, and possibilities embedded in the phrase: Out of many, one.
One of our goals has always been to stretch ourselves beyond what we have done before and Season Four is no exception. We are grateful and joyful for the vibrant and diverse community that allows us to keep reaching past our present successes to create work that investigates the path to a more cohesive and inclusive future for all.
Our Season Four lineup is bigger than ever with five main stage productions -- two in repertory with each other -- and a continuation of our successful Playwright’s Fellowship program, as well as an expansion of our educational work. Cohesion will once again continue expanding our collaborative mission by working in partnership with local theatre companies and our neighborhood communities to engage, encourage, and excite our audiences.
Cohesion Theatre Company seeks to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate. Society creates distinctions: between classical and new plays, between artistic disciplines, between companies, and between people of different race, class, and gender. CTC will examine these distinctions through the lens of live theatre with the goal of reaching a deeper understanding of what makes us individuals and what makes us all human. Cohesion actively seeks out other theatrical professionals, both individuals and organizations, and encourages cross promotion, co-production, and collaboration in every facet of the work we do.
