Almost an Evening Opens March 13

Mon, 11 March, 2013 at 8:28 am
Almost an Evening takes the audience on a darkly comedic journey as we watch a young man struggle to escape purgatory (or is it hell?), a British intelligence agent undergo a sudden crisis of faith, and two versions of God engage in a passionate competition for their audience’s faith.

These three short plays by Ethan Coen - one half of the Academy Award-winning Coen brothers responsible for “Fargo” and the “The Big Lebowski,” among other films - deliver an engaging and surprising evening of comedic entertainment, in what Newsday called “… the serious stage debut of a shrewd and weirdly endearing comic voice.”

Almost an Evening opens Wednesday, March 13 with a special matinee at 12:45 p.m. Please be advised that this play uses strong language & profanity, and may not be appropriate for all audiences.

All performances will be held in the Flex Theater, Building 3, Room 129. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 seniors, and $5 students and are available at the door hour before show time.
