Forum Ensemble Member Stephen Spotswood
Directed by Matt Ripa
January 3-13, 2013
Shows are Thursday - Saturday at 8:00 PM and Sunday at 2:00 PM.
Capricious gods, forbidden love, false prophets, true seers, ancient kings, bandit queens, switched genders, eyes plucked out in fistfuls and a healthy dose of gallows humor. Is the future of mankind a comedy or a tragedy?
Featuring: Bill Aitken, Melissa Hmelnicky, Chris Stinson
