Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Breach Once More has been limited to online productions. Our first of this year was a zoom production of THE TAMING OF THE BREAKFAST CLUB. Up Next: we are flexing our variety muscles. Zoom original content and workshops of emerging Bay Area Playwrights, Sketch Comedy on Twitch and Lauren and Steve's not so podcast-podcast where we discuss some of the challenges of being a theatre artist in this new era, specifically in the Bay Area. Guests to include local actors, directors, immersive artists, comedians, dancers, drag performers and some guests-- whose criticism of theatre may help solve some of its problems. Finally, we hope to be back live, on the peninsula, sometime in 2021. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization any, and all donations are appreciated and are tax deductible.
Directed by, Lauren Burgat
The Taming of the Breakfast Club, is a mash-up of 80’s-cult classic films and faux-Elizabethan language; about which the Bard woulds't undoubtedly state: "Doth thou wanteth me to puke?"
The Taming of the the Breakfast Club features, five preparatory students, in Shermer Castle; Shermshire, in the house of Illy O' Noise, 1584. These over age'd children doth endureth-eth a Saturday detention (of our souls) under a power-hungry principal, The Duke of Vernon. The disparate groupe includes: Sir Andrew, (the Sport-o-Cus) Dame Clare, (a Lady Right Royal) Lady Allison ( a Basket O' Case) , Sir Brian (A "Midsummer's Cream") and The Knave (John) Bender. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently -- and when the day ends (as the cock doth crow) they question whether school, Olde Londony town, or their wits will ever be the same.
Featuring: Katie Motta, Krista Muir, Steve Bologna, Gordon Bell, Robert Levy, Joanna Mahaffy and Alfred Muller as Knave Bender.
WORD ON THE STREET
“What Breach Once More’s production lacks in flashy production design it makes up for with emotionally sincere performances. Its focus is on how these characters act and react to the actions around them. And in the end, that’s all that’s really needed.”
