Saints, Sinners and Thieves
by Paradox Players
Sep. 20 - Oct. 06
Saints, Sinners and Thieves is an evening of three one-act plays, Soldier of the Cross and A Fool and His Money written by Sally Seitz, and I Am Not the Person You Have Made Me Out to Be written by Marianne Serene, both playwrights achieving honors at Hype Park Theatre’s and ScriptWork’s short fringe festival, FronteraFest.
The character Trudy from Jane Wagner’s In Search of Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe will introduce each play.
Soldier of the Cross and A Fool and His Money, both written by Sally Seitz, are tales of southern travelers. Soldier of the Cross divulges lessons from an unlikely prophet, while A Fool and His Money uncovers the origin story of a conman. Both characters offer their interpretations of salvation, redemption, and survival.
I Am Not the Person You Have Made Me Out to Be explores the misconceptions that are created around the perceptions of who we are for our parents. This play written by Marianne Serene will involve some audience participation.
Whether you are a saint, a sinner, or a thief, or all of the above, there will be much to captivate your thoughts and feelings in these three plays with commentary about each by Trudy.
Directed by Sally Seitz and Barbara Abbate.
