Having worked in multiple creative mediums, Chance Eon Romero is shaking things up in the theatre scene with the traveling company titled “Dark Drama Theatre”. They go to various locations depending on the material they are producing. The group’s mission statement; “Theatre is never going to be edgy and gritty in the way it should be – we are here to change that.”
The up and coming group is currently doing a series of plays with the main theme being “The Pillowman”, all of which were written by Martin McDonagh. A British-Irish screenwriter, the hailed artist first hit the scene in the early 90’s and was viewed as a provocative playwright. He would later find success as a director with such films as “In Bruges”, “Seven Psychopaths”, and “Three Billboards”. Now the “Dark Drama Theatre” group is bringing his work to New Mexico.
To promote their latest entry, “The Three Gibbet Crossroads”, a short promotional video was crafted. Directed by Phil Hughes and shot by my dear friend Erick Castillo, the scene is set for what ensures to be nothing short of twisted. Three men are trapped in dangling cages in the desert. One is dead with the sign ‘Rapist’ above. One is beaten with the sign ‘Murderer’ above. And the third one, well we don’t exactly know. It is a beautifully shot video from start to finish and I can’t wait to see what the hell this play is all about.
Tickets will be available if you visit their website listed above. Dates and locations have yet to be finalized due to the current pandemic. If you want to learn more or get involved with the company e-mail the mastermind himself at email@example.com.
