In 1974, Will Geer and other original Theatricum company members recreated the experience of a troop of mummers performing a mystery play typical of The Middle Ages in Europe. This rarely seen film, full of familiar faces and screened now for the first time in nearly five decades, illustrates how early acting companies in the 1400s helped give way to the modern theater as we know it. Artistic Director Ellen Geer and company member Melora Marshall will host this special screening with a discussion to follow.
