Mercury Rising (Mercury Players Theatre)

MAY 20th, 2006
Mercury Rising was a collection of six short plays written by local playwrights for the Mercury Players Theatre. The DVD for this show contains a brief, behind-the-scenes featurette and several commentary tracks (including a secret celebrity impersonation commentary). The DVD is available occasionally at the merch table at some Mercury Players Theatre shows, or at the merch table at monthly Wis-Kino screenings. The plays deal with diverse topics, such as:
  • Polyamouris relationships
  • Secret agents (sort of)
  • The end of the world
  • Probability
  • The brewing of beer
  • Assassins in love

The plays were all shot on a "black box" stage, thus the sets are minimalistic. This acctually looks kind of cool on camera, as black walls of the stage are pretty solid black on camera, giving a surreal effect to the images. I have approximately one minute long clips from each of the plays available for download:
