“Faust in Wonderland” by the Faustians

“Faust in Wonderland” by the Faustians

Conjured from a cauldron of Company actors coveting to conserve their chops, conflicted and confused concurrently with the Covid crisis, Faust in Wonderland was conceived.

As it happened one day, a director, an actor and a poet deliberated on what Faust in Wonderland could artistically convey and all agreed that alliteration should be both alleviated and allayed.

Beyond that critical caveat, a consensus was categorically codified that the characters in the Company would conduct plays and monologues as radio podcasts on their website, Facebook and YouTube.

Because many of our thespians are also playwrights, they collectively hope to perform their original plays, monologues and “commercials,” as well as present established repertory stage and film scripts.

So, wandering like black poodles, the players of Faust in Wonderland hope you enjoy our actor’s modified, but meager memes for modern media messaging.

Faust in Wonderland’s resident playwright, Bill Chessman, presents an infamous interpretation of instant radio mixed with humor and a pinch of sarcasm. Throw in a few commercials, and you have a podcast salad worthy of anyone who listens!
