There's an upcoming production that I'm looking forward to checking out. Flux Theatre Ensemble is presenting The Angel Eaters Trilogy by Johnna Adams in November. They're performing all three plays in rep. It's ambitious project and one I think should be rewarded with a lot of attention and eyeballs. The trilogy is about "generations of a family cursed with the ability to raise the dead and wrestle with angels" so I'm told.
Sounds like the Kentucky Cycle meets Pushing Daisies. Or something like that.
Either way, I'm there. And you should give it a go too. Here's where you can grab some tickets.
