Four friends embark on a three-day canoe trip down a wild section of river in the heartland of Georgia. On the morning of the second day, their adventure explodes into a horrific struggle for survival.

The play is adapted from the unsettling, best-selling novel by National Book Award-winner James Dickey. Released in 1972, DELIVERANCE was called "A novel that will curl your toes...Dickey's canoe rides to the limits of dramatic tension" by the New York Times Book Review and "A brilliant and breathtaking adventure" by the New Yorker. The Drama Desk Award-winning Godlight Theatre Company, widely praised for their stage translations of challenging literary works, marks their 20th Anniversary with this world premiere.

The cast features Eddie Dunn, Bryce Hodgson, Gregory Konow, Nick Paglino, Jason Bragg Stanley, Sean Tant, and Jarrod Zayas.

The design team is Maruti Evans (set and lighting); Ien DeNio (sound); and Orli Nativ (costumes). Rick Sordelet is the fight choreographer. Original music is by Bryce Hodgson and Danny Blackburn.
