Summer Tour 2018:

Shiver We Timbers!
A Peripatetic Pick-Ye-Own Pirate Adventure

July 7 – August 12

Idiot String (Founding Producers Joan Howard and Rebecca Longworth) announced today that their fifth annual summer touring production will be a pirate-themed, participatory play.

Shiver We Timbers! will be performed on FluxWagon, The Peripatetic Players’ folding mobile stage that is set up by the ensemble shortly before each show. As with previous Peripatetic Players productions, the Players will playfully interact with the audience before, during and after their show. Shiver We Timbers!, based on pirate stories from history, pop culture, and myth, features a structure inspired by “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, and original songs as well as new takes on traditional sea shanties.

The adventure begins when the Players set theatrical sail on the high seas, but when they can’t decide what course to take, it’s up to the audience to weigh in. The audience is asked to “choose their own adventure” at key points in the narrative, which will alter the story and outcome -- sometimes resulting in the epic demise of one or all Players, or the audience themselves. And like a choose-your-own adventure book, the story can pick up again at a different spot to keep the fun going.

The touring show will be performed by Idiot String’s dedicated troupe, the Samuel Peaches Peripatetic Players, at parks and public spaces throughout the Bay Area; the tour will visit San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Niles (Fremont), Pleasanton and Port Costa.
