Madison has a new drama troupe. Anarch City Theatre Company debuts at the Project Lodge, 817 E. Johnson St., with a program at 8 p.m. Oct. 8 and 9.
Deal with the Devil, by the company's artistic director, Chris Snapp, will be performed. The program also includes The Dumb Waiter by Harold Pinter and Sucker by Susan Galasso.
The production will be an example of "storefront" theater, with minimal staging. "It's kind of a guerrilla-type thing, coming in under the radar," says Snapp. "Our emphasis will primarily be on avant-garde and social-consciousness shows."
The company is still working toward nonprofit status. Snapp hopes to fundraise this winter and field a full season starting next summer.
