And the Word Became Flesh: A Re-Imagining of the Gospel According to John

Black Box Theater

And the Word Became Flesh is a staged expression of the Gospel according to John that offers a unique experience of John’s account of the life of Jesus Christ through live theatrical performance.  Through this re-imagining of the greatest story ever told, we hope to bring John's entire gospel to vivid life in an unforgettable, uplifting story of hope and love for everyone.  We believe experiencing John’s gospel in this unique way has the power to touch lives, enrich faith, and transform our community and the world with disciplined intelligence, compassion, courage, and faith.

Spring 2020 Semester

The Man of Mode by George Etheredge

Troutt Theater

The play is set in Restoration London and follows the libertine Dorimant as he tries to win over the young heiress Harriet and to disengage himself from his affair with Mrs. Loveit. Etherege built a reputation for drama depicting frivolous lives revolving around flirtation and romance. Today, he is considered one of the “big five” of Restoration comedy. The Man of Mode, Etherege’s last play, appears to satirize many contemporaries of Restoration London.

Robin Hood by David Wood, Dave Arthur, Toni Arthur

Black Box Theater

Not so long ago it was traditional in England for May Day to be celebrated on the village green with organized May Games. It is a re-creation of these May Games which provides the framework for this musical version of the Robin Hood legend. We join a group of villagers celebrating May Day with a variety of pastimes – singing, dancing, acrobatics and competitive sports. Against this background are set a number of playlets in which the villagers take on Robin Hood roles to tell the various well-known tales of Robin Hood, including "Robin Hood and Friar Tuck," "Robin Hood and Little John" and "Robin Hood and Allen-a-Dale."

Crumbs from the Table of Joy by Lynn Nottage

Black Box Theater

The play takes place in Brooklyn in 1950. An African- American man, Godfrey Crump, grieving over his wife's death, finds new meaning in religion. He moves his family, Ernestine, a 17-year-old and Ermina, 15 years old, from Florida to Brooklyn. Their Aunt Lily espouses Communist sentiments and Godfrey's new wife is not only a white woman, but German.

Argonautika by Mary Zimmerman 

Troutt Theater

(A Collaboration with Verge Theater)

This play is a modern adaptation of the mythology around Jason and the Argonauts, and their quest to obtain the Golden Fleece. Encountering an array of daunting challenges in their “first voyage of the world,” Jason and his crew illus­trate the essence of all such journeys to follow—their un­predictability, their inspiring and overwhelming breadth of emotion, their lessons in the inevitability of failure and loss.
