WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

What would you do for more life? Due to rights issues, Flux Theatre Ensemble will not be producing Archibald MacLeish's play, J.B. as previously planned. In its place, Flux will be staging the world premiere of August Schulenburg's Jacob's House, a play inspired by the loss of J.B. Schulenburg has taken the themes, style, design elements, staging concept, and cast from Flux's planned production, and used them as inspiration to write his own unique riff on the story of Jacob wrestling the Angel. When three siblings argue over a strange provision in their father Jacob's will, allegiances shift, as secrets of his past are uncovered. As the full danger of his power is revealed, Jacob's son and daughters must decide what to do with their enigmatic inheritance. This darkly comic riff on the Biblical story of Jacob explores the legacies of violence and power, and the cost of wrestling with the divine. Director Kelly O'Donnell and playwright August Schulenburg team up again for the first time since their Award-winning collaboration on Riding the Bull.
