Jay Stewart in Dumb Show and Noise at the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival

Dumb Show and Noise

by Jay Stewart and Mike Smith

Shakespeare’s clowning and Williams’ grotesque humor fuse together in a fast-paced, slapstick recap of the Festival, from tears to triumphs to storms at sea – performed while speaking nary a word.

In this year’s lineup of plays, the boundaries between farce and tragedy melt away. But in this almost-silent dumb show, Shakespeare and Williams’ fools and tragic heroes collide in a waterlogged free-for-all featuring Brewster-based clown Jay Stewart, joined by his Idaho-based partner Mike Smith.

Pouring out the slapstick, they will reprise the flow of the Festival – from Hamlet’s storm at sea to the fountain of the Camino Real – with few words, and buckets of humor.
