After five years together, Bad Epitaph Theatre Co. has written its own obituary. Following a busy 2004 that found the company staging four shows that ranged from parody performed in local hair salons ("Gwen Hairy, Gwen Gloss") to an outdoor Fourth of July production with a Shakespearean twist ("The American Revolution"), the six-member group announced its dissolution to supporters via e-mail. "We feel we have accomplished what we set out to achieve, and that we have reached our end," the company said in the message jointly signed by members Thomas Cullinan, David Hansen, Alison Hernan, Nick Koesters, Brian Pedaci and Gina Verdi. "In the past five years, the core company members of Bad Epitaph have emerged from the periphery of the Cleveland theater scene and moved into its mainstream as award-winning playwrights, equity actors, acclaimed costume designers, staff members of universities, sought-after composers, educators in schools, husbands, wives and parents of very small children."
