On July 10, join Synetic Theater will present its first virtual production “The Decameron”. It is an adaptation of Giovanni Boccaccio’s masterful collection of stories written in response to the Black Death of 1348.
As per Mount Vernon Gazette, “As an epidemic ravages their city, 10 young Florentines take refuge in a secluded villa, where they amuse themselves by each telling a story a day over the course of ten days—a hundred stories of romance, adventure and twists along the way. Synetic’s adaptation partners 35+ veteran company members and emerging artists from across the globe, each taking turns adapting one of the stories. This experience–told in serial format over 10 days—honors the unfolding of the source material and celebrates the human impulse to connect through storytelling in a time of despair and isolation. Pay-what-you-can ticket options begin at $10. Visit the website: https://synetictheater.org/”
