About this show

bie Award winning ensemble Elevator Repair Service returns to The Public, home to its sold-out productions of Gatz (2010 and 2012) and Arguendo (2013), with their highly praised staging of William Faulkner's modernist masterpiece, The Sound and the Fury.

With a lush sound score, high-energy choreography and a profoundly versatile ensemble, ERS delivers a verbatim staging of the novel's opening chapter ("the Benjy chapter"), Faulkner's famous experiment with memory and language.

Serving up the tragic demise of Faulkner's Compson family with humor and pathos against a backdrop of an eerily timeless Southern living room, this ensemble of theatrical daredevils, known for their fearless commitment, breathes thrilling new life into another American literary classic.
