About This Show

In Horizon, a work for three actors loosely based on the teachings of theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, playwright Rinde Eckert plays Reinhart Poole, an unconventional theologian and teacher of ethics at a seminary. Reinhart, who has been pressured to resign by dogmatic powers within his church, works all night on his last lecture. He also talks with his wife, argues with the ghost of his brother, remembers conversations, and indulges his hobby: writing a comic allegory about two ageless masons who’ve been building the same church foundation for 1750 years. In story, song, movement, and music Reinhart, his family, and his strange masons inhabit a visually brilliant landscape, a moving and funny horizon.
