Ye Olde Theatre: All Minimalist and 2.0-ey.


We dig the theatre, especially reworkings of Shakespeare and his frothy contributions to the perpetually-tragic human condition, so these posters for the Denver Center Theater Company hit us in a smushy spot.

Meant to promote a 10-play series targeted to more youthful play-goers, the posters each take a play (Shakespeare or otherwise), then interpret it in contemporary symbology and use a few words to encompass the heart of the drama.

The posters are two-sided. One side is for the imagery and the name of the play; the other side is for the text. At left, the eyeball and the drop of blood represent Othello. The other side reads, "Who can you trust when you can't trust yourself?"

Other pieces:

o Mariela in the Desert, front and back
o Mama Hated Diesels, front and back
o Eventide, front and back

10 in all by the fine folks at Cactus/Denver. Collect them before the sorority girls do, because this is totally the kind of material we'd thumbtack all over our dorm rooms.
