Ego Actus presents an Equity Showcase Code production of
The Tragedy of Dandelion
a new play by Duncan Pflaster
directed by Joan Kane
The Princess Dandelion dresses as a boy in order to escape her rapist and would-be husband, along the way falling in love with another princess, and traveling through her society, meeting nuns, soldiers, and clowns, and all the time her pregnancy continues, the impending birth complicating everything.
Written entirely in iambic pentameter and full of Shakespearean tropes and double entendres. All 30 male and female roles will be played by ten women.
featuring Mim Granahan*, Erin Nelson, Kate Dickinson, Kelly Zekas, Maria Peyramaure*,
Louise Flory, Dianne Diep, Calaine Schafer, Shannon Stowe* and Susan Wallack*

"The more than 30 roles in this piece are played by  women, and it is this notion - so skillfully carried out in this premiere production by director Joan Kane that gives such enormous gravitas to this Tragedy."
