What is Passion Play? Passion Play by Sarah Ruhl is a collection of three plays which can be performed separately or together. Play I and Play II will be performed at Profile Theatre September 9-13 and Play III will be performed at Shaking the Tree Theatre September 25-October 24.
What is it about? Politics, love, humor and belief collide as small town communities prepare their annual production of “the greatest story ever told.” This three-part story travels from medieval England to World War II Bavaria and then to contemporary South Dakota. Ruhl’s writing exposes the transformative effect of creating theatrical events, while asking big questions about humanity, faith and doubt. Passion Play is funny, imaginative and full of wonder. It is, like all plays about plays, about the people creating the work, and the society that surrounds them.
Who is involved? Cast: Foss Curtis, Sam Dinkowitz, Shawna Holt, Mickey Jordan, Colin Kane, Matthew Kerrigan, Diane Kondrat*, Garland Lyons, Alexandra Ramirez and Paul Susi. Creative Team: Sara Ludeman, Natasha Stockem, Samantha van der Merwe, D Westerholm*, Annalise Albright Woods and Jeff Woods.
Tickets to Profile’s Fall Festival: "Passion Play" are available by calling 503.242.0080.
**More information about the IN DIALOGUE talk at 1:20 pm:
For Passion Play, Profile is thrilled to be partnering with local artists and with the Geezer Gallery in an exploration of the impact of religious art and iconography on visual artists. Join us prior to each performance to hear from a different artist about their work and about how religion informs their process, be it to move them towards or away from an expression of faith.
On Sunday, September 13th, the presenter will be Mary Pacios (Printmaking)**
