THE MYSTERY PLAYS Runs Nov. 6-21

Falcon Theatre presents THE MYSTERY PLAYS, Friday-Nov. 21.

THE MYSTERY PLAYS
Falcon Theatre
Nov. 6-21
Newport

Directed by Lindsey Augusta Mercer

Cast: Jared Earland, Becca Howell, Adam Jones, Simon Powell, Nicole Jeannine Smith & Leah Strasser

Two interrelated one acts. In the first play, The Filmmaker’s Mystery, Joe Manning, a director of horror films, survives a terrible train wreck—only to be haunted by the ghost of Nathan West, one of the passengers who didn’t survive. As the police investigate Joe, he investigates Nathan, desperate to understand why he survived and what Nathan’s specter could possible want. In the second play, Ghost Children, Abby Gilly travels to a small town in rural Oregon to make peace with the man who brutally murdered her parents and younger sister sixteen years earlier. The man—the murderer—is her older brother. Like the original medieval mystery plays, THE MYSTERY PLAYS wrestles with the most profound of human ideas: the mysteries of death, the afterlife, religion, faith, and forgiveness—in a uniquely American way.

  • Fri-Sat, Nov. 6-7 at 8pm
  • Thu-Sat, Nov. 12-14 at 8pm
