Performing the work of Shakespeare can be a daunting task for any actor. Between the rhythm of iambic pentameter and the unnaturalness of such poetic language, learning the lines of any of the Bard's comedies, tragedies and histories takes time and practice with your fellow cast members. The Henley Street Theatre Company seems to get a kick out of just winging it. Performing the bloody revenge tale of “Titus Andronicus,” Henley Street presents its second annual Bootleg Shakespeare production. Featuring home-brought costumes and props, silly string for blood and the potential for some improvisational gaffes, this unrehearsed play is scheduled for a one-night performance at the Barksdale Theatre at Willow Lawn at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30. Tickets are free, limited to two per person. First-come, first-served.
