THE GREAT DIVORCE

 

Adapted by George Drance and the Magis Theatre Company from the novel by C.S. Lewis Hell resembles nothing so much as a dreary industrial city in the north of England, its denizens free to leave whenever they like — aboard a bus bound for a heaven that’s like nothing you’ve ever imagined. A theologically dazzling journey studded with memorable characters, mind-spinning dialogue, and images of human folly and sublime hope that will forever change the way you see eternity.

MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY

 

By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon. A sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice set two years after the novel ends, Miss Bennet continues the story, only this time with bookish middle-sister Mary as its unlikely heroine. Mary is growing tired of her role as dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings’ romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love.

TRUTH BE TOLD – AN ORIGINAL PLAY BY AMY DUNLAP

 

Based on the life of Sojourner Truth, born Isabella Bomfree, this original play explores the unlikely friendship of two women – a former slave and the white abolitionist Olive Gilbert who helped her write her life story. In 1843, “Belle” declared that the Spirit called on her to preach the truth, renaming herself Sojourner Truth. Truth became an outspoken advocate for abolition, temperance, and civil and women’s rights in the nineteenth century. In 1850, she dictated what would become her autobiography—The Narrative of Sojourner Truth—to Olive Gilbert, who assisted in its publication. Truth survived on sales of the book, which also brought her national recognition. Her Civil War work earned her an invitation to meet President Abraham Lincoln in 1864. Truth died in 1883. Her final words were “be a follower of the Lord Jesus.”

New Yorker Tommy Albright unexpectedly arrives at the mysterious Scottish Highland village of Brigadoon, which only appears for one day every 100 years. When Tommy meets and falls in love with Fiona, a beautiful villager in this magical hamlet, he must decide whether to return to his old life, or stay in Brigadoon—forever. (MTI)
