Wide Eyed Productions unleashes their explosive sense of humor this summer with Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire's hilarious tragedy (that's right), A Devil Inside. On his 21st birthday Gene is informed that his 400-pound father was brutally murdered while hiking in the Poconos. Now, left with only the old man's severed feet (carefully preserved in a jar of formaldehyde), Gene must find the killer and avenge his footless father. Director and company member, Justin Ness, leads the Wide Eyed team in this their third full-length production. Wide Eyed has been building steam since last fall's inaugural production of Euripides' The Medea. NYTheatre.com called it "exhilarating and haunting." Wide Eyed then answered this success by mounting a modern take on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing that The Shakespeare Revue hailed as a "slam dunk production" and Sugarzine deemed "a hilarious night of theatre."
"Murder, gore and psychosis. All purposeful and funny. A Devil Inside keeps the house laughing for two hours." - The New York Times.
