Flux Theatre Ensemble concludes its 2008 Season of Transformation with the world premiere of
Johnna Adams' epic Angel Eaters Trilogy. The Trilogy follows three generations of a family cursed with the gift of raising people from the dead.
In Angel Eaters (the first in the trilogy), Joann, a slow girl growing up poor in 1930's Oklahoma, claims to talk to angels and raise animals from the dead. But when her father dies, the angel's message takes a darker turn. As her mother hires a pair of carnies to raise her dead husband, Joann struggles to understand if her growing power is good or evil, and whether she should fight God to bring her father back.
The cast of Angel Eaters is Tiffany Clementi, Ken Glickfeld*, Ian Heitzman, Catherine Porter*, Marnie Schulenburg, Isaiah Tanenbaum, Gregory Waller*, and Cotton Wright.*
Rattlers, set in the 1970's, follows the children of the survivors of Angel Eaters. Unwilling to accept her sister Kate's death, Ernelle kidnaps Osley, her ex-lover and uses dark methods of persuasion to convince him to raise Kate from the dead. Meanwhile, Kate and Ernelle's mother, believing her daughter was murdered, seeks revenge, while the two men who may have killed her share memories of the woman they loved. This hauntingly intimate play examines how love can drive good people to acts of unspeakable violence.
The cast of Rattlers is Matthew Crosby, David Jackson, Becky Kelly, Jason Paradine, Amy
Stewart*, Jane Lincoln Taylor*, and Richard B. Watson.*
Set 20 years in the future, 8 Little Antichrists (the final play of the trilogy) imagines a dystopia where Disney Corporation runs jails and SONY clones workers. Skipping ahead two generations, 8 Little Antichrists follows Osley's (from Rattlers) grandchildren - Jeremy and Melanie - in their quest to stop the apocalypse and save the world from the antichrists. This story is the thrilling conclusion to a three play battle between good and evil, love and loss.
The cast of 8 Little Antichrists is Jake Alexander, Candice Holdorf*, Felicia Hudson*, Nora Hummel*, Elise Link, Joe Mathers, Rebecca McHugh, Zack Robidas, and August Schulenburg.
