This July, Barnyard Theatre will present its thirteenth season – an agri-theatrical adventure complete with goats, spotlights, and California sunsets.
The mainstage production, An Almanac for Farmers and Lovers in Mexico by Kate Tarker and directed by Eden Tomich, will thrust you into the personal crisis of Flora, an American anthropologist working in Mexico, who is desperately trying to keep her wedding on track.
The characters in Almanac scramble to enact the hoped-for wedding – and marriage – through a mountain of ordinary-sized obstacles with extraordinary-sized implications. The play opens with Flora and Pelé’s eager preparations for their wedding dissolved into confusion; as Pelé has suddenly transformed into a hummingbird.
Flora and her friends fight to keep her planned marriage alive through bureaucratic hoop-jumping; a maid of honor who loses her soul; and a groom whose humanity has been called into question. It’s a magically lyrical comedy looking at love, friendship, and commitment.
Note: This play contains some strong language and two comedic scenes referencing sexual situations that may not be appropriate for all children.
