ABOUT THIS PODCAST
ICKipedia Theatre is a podcast which pits classical works of theatre against their contemporary adaptations in an effort to poke fun at — and poke holes in — the western canon.
In each episode, we adapt an unsuspecting work of classic theatre from its truest, most distilled form: its Wikipedia plot summary. These scripts are anti-adaptations, stripping the classics down to an absurd simplicity. When we strip away colorful language, poetic metre, and all nuance, we are left with a ridiculous core: plot.
Join theatre artists Joshua Brown (co-producer, sound designer) and Lauren D'Errico (co-producer, ICKmaster) on a journey of old-meets-new with ICKipedia.
