UPDATE: June 19, 2018 ~ Meet Chloe Mikala! She plays "Katie" in The Tragical Comical Fool's Game. 1.) Where are you from?? I technically hail from the dark vortex known as Western Maryland, but I have been living in DC for the past two years, after five years of living and going to school in Baltimore. 2.) How did you get your start in theatre? Hesitantly started theatre in high school. I was obsessed with playing sports and had HUGE stage fright, but after I did my first show and got that first laugh, it was all over. I knew that I wanted to try and pursue whatever "this" was even further. Basically, Troy Bolton and I have a lot in common...minus the love story...and mad basketball skills. 3.) What excites you the most about TTCFG? I love and live for new plays. I especially am always curious about diving into new plays that take Shakespeare's text and/or plot line and turn it on its head or loosely recreate something (personally I find them more interesting than the original text itself). I was fortunate enough to do an awesome new play last summer that was loosely based around Hamlet and am excited to dive into another devised Shakespearean piece this summer! Now for some of Chloe's previous performance history...DC/Baltimore: The Welders: To Tell My Story: A Hamlet Fanfic; Switch. NextStop Theatre Company: 45 Plays for 45 Presidents. Keegan Theatre: Here Again (WomXn on Fire Festival); Pointless Theatre Company: A Very Pointless Holiday Spectacular.

UPDATE: June 7, 2018 ~ Meet Ed! Edward is a professional Actor from the United Kingdom. He is a graduate of both the University of Birmingham and The Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon, where he co-created The Tragical Comical Fool's Game and can't quite believe he gets to cross the pond to reprise his role as 'Fool' in DC! Back home, he is co-director of the theatre company Rag City and in his spare time enjoys procrastination and more video-gaming than is healthy.
UDATE: June 6, 2018 ~ Let's meet the ensemble! Thank you so much for your support! This important work doesn't happen without your help! And now, I'd like to introduce you to some of our ensemble!
