Flux’s Next ForePlay – DIVINE RECKONINGS

DIVINE RECKONINGS – ForePlay just got biblical.

Our exploratory play reading series, where playwrights riff on the themes of our mainstage production, is back. This ForePlay, called Divine Reckonings, will feature 16 playwrights re-imagining 8 stories from the Old Testament, inspired by the upcoming production of Jacob’s House, our modern retelling of Jacob wrestling the Angel.

Flux is part of The Passion Play Coalition, a collaboration of theatres exploring the themes of Epic Theatre Ensemble’s upcoming production of Sarah Ruhl’s Passion Play. For more information on The Passion Play Festival Coalition, click here.
