Release Date April 29
In a postmodern performance, Theatre Brookhaven takes the audience to “revisit” the Garden of Eden in “The Serpent.” This spring’s production challenges the viewers to become more socially and politically conscious by seeing the challenges of modern society through the Biblical stories of the original fall. Performances are April 28-May 8 in the Arena Theatre, Building C, Room C205.
Written by Jean-Claude van Itallie in collaboration with the Open Theater, “The Serpent: a Ceremony” is a reflection of its time, yet reflective of almost any period in its examination of the nature of lost innocence. In the late 1960s, the country had faced a series of assassinations of prominent and charismatic leaders like John and Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr. The play received the prestigious Village Voice Obie Award and the Vernon Rice Book Award in 1969 for its exploration of man as a powerful force capable of goodness, evil and the transcendence of both.
Evening and matinee performances are April 28-30 and May 5-7 at 8 p.m., and May 1 and 8 at 2:30 p.m. General admission is $8; students and senior adults are $6. For tickets, contact the Box Office at Ext. 4118 or at BHC_BoxOffice@dcccd.edu.
