Valentino at the Hollywood Fringe

April 27, 2010

“The play is set in Italy, 1502. Duke Valentino must face the sins of his past in order to protect his family.”

Could you excuse me, the hopeless romantic inside of me is crying already – I must get a tissue. ANYWAY, I’m all good now.

As I was saying, “Valentino: a play in verse” was shopped in the 2007 NewWorks Festival at our very own College of the Canyons and is being produced for the Hollywood Fringe Festival this June by local Santa Claritans David Wisehart and Rachel Stoll. And it sounds like quite the classy production based on the synopsis:

The play is set in Italy, 1502. Duke Valentino must face the sins of his past in order to protect his family. Brilliant and ambitious, Valentino wages a war to reclaim the Papal States for Rome, but he is haunted by the memory of murdering his brother. His beloved sister, Lucrezia Borgia, may already be plotting his destruction. Now his mercenary captains have formed a conspiracy against him. Valentino’s only hope for survival lies with two Florentine men of genius: Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolò Machiavelli.

If you’d like more information, check out valentinoplay.com or email rach.stoll@gmail.com.

We’re not going to tell you dates and/or times just yet – because the play doesn’t start until June, and we know that you’ll just forget. Expect us to remind you later.
