Bailiwick Repertory's sixth annual Directors Festival showcases the aspirations of generally unknown, mostly young pro, semipro, and student directors whose projects range from established classical and contemporary selections to brand-new material. Bailiwick Repertory, Bailiwick Arts Center, 1229 W. Belmont, 883-1090. The fest concludes Thursday, October 27, at 7:30 PM with a program of three one-acts linked by the theme "Symbols and Absurdities." $8 for the whole evening.


Act Without Words

Samuel Beckett's work is performed by deaf and hearing actors under Robert Schleifer's direction.

The Billy Club Puppets . . . The Tragicomedy of Don Cristobal and Miss Rosita

Federico Garcia Lorca's early one-act was originally performed as a children's puppet show; Full Moon Circus's production, directed by Tom Tenney, uses live actors and a range of performance styles, including Spanish puppet theater and commedia dell'arte.


Maria Muller directs an ensemble-created piece in which the Hindu epic Mahabharata becomes "a modern parable of the evolution of women."
