All Hallow’s Eve
Written & Directed by Martin P. Robinson

October 18th - November 2nd, 2019
Tickets: $30 (online only, no phone sales)
Eve and Evan are twins roped into yet another desperately dull Halloween by their parents. Managing to break free, they maraud, pumpkin smash and toilet paper, inadvertently crossing the thin line between worlds on this night of all nights. Enter a house and a demoness who has been lying in wait for just such a pair. A harrowing cat and mouse game ensues with the stakes nothing less than their immortal souls. A tale wrapped up in horror, comedy and blood…and definitely not for young children.

The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists. Miller was questioned by the House of Representatives’ Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.
Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience, Bedlam creates works of theatre that reinvigorate traditional forms in a flexible, raw space, collapsing aesthetic distance and bringing its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life. In this new, fresh, active environment storytelling becomes paramount and the result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy.
Bedlam’s shows have been noted as Ben Brantley’s “Critics’ Picks” for The New York Times six times, noted on The New York Times and New York Magazine’s “Top Ten Best Show Lists” two times, as well as those of The Wall Street Journal and Time Magazine respectively. The Wall Street Journal also noted Eric Tucker as “Director of the Year” in 2014. Bedlam has won two Irne Awards, two Off Broadway Alliance Awards and an Obie Grant. Bedlam has also been nominated for two Lucille Lortel awards, a Drama League award, and four Elliot Norton awards, winning for Best Visiting Production and Best Ensemble for Saint Joan, and six Elliot Norton awards, winning for Best Visiting Production and Best Ensemble for Bedlam’s Saint Joan, Best Visiting Production for Bedlam’s Twelfth Night/What You Will and Best Visiting Performer for Vaishnavi Sharma in Bedlam’s Pygmalion.
