Two of the short plays included in Ray Bradbury’s holiday show at Fremont Centre have proven so popular, that they’re being brought back in January, adding a third short play to make a full evening of theatre.
The Pedestrian is the story of a dystopian future, where walking outdoors after dark whether for pleasure or exercise is prohibited by law. Jay Gerber and Michael Prichard play two men who choose to defy that law in this new staging based on Bradbury’s precursor to his masterpiece "Fahrenheit 451."
In Invisible Boy, a manipulative but lonely witch seeks to adopt a relative as her own son. As an inducement, she offers the lad a gift of invisibility. Things don’t turn out quite the way she planned. Roses Prichard and Grady Hutt star in this new adaptation of the classic Bradbury fantasy.
Bless Me, Father, For I Have Sinned": A priest is called upon to give absolution on Christmas Eve for a supplicant’s appalling act of cruelty. Jay Gerber stars in this stage adaptation of Bradbury’s story.
