JCS Theater Company Presents THE DEVIL IS ON THE LOOSE WITH AN AXE IN MARSHALLTOWN
Jake Shore announces JCS Theater Company's Production of THE DEVIL IS ON THE LOOSE WITH AN AXE IN MARSHALLTOWN @ Franklin Electric.
The play's short description reads "16 characters. 1 chair. 2 murders." The play's structure and design is in part inspired by the fact that the arts in America are now under even more stress. "If the arts in this country are under attack," says Shore, "give me a group of talented actors, an intimate space and a chair, and I'll fight back."
Jake Shore is an award-winning playwright, novelist, short story writer, director and educator who teaches courses in creative writing and literature at Wagner College. His play entitled Holy Moly premiered last August at The Flea Theater and was simultaneously released with the tandem novel entitled A Country for Fibbing. Broadwayworld states "The debut and simultaneous release of Holy Moly and A Country for Fibbing, an innovative multi-media experience, marks the first time a play with a correlating novel have been simultaneously released in the United States."
THE DEVIL will play Franklin Electric, 650 Franklin Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238. Performances are held at 7:30pm & 9pm on the first three Saturdays in August: 8/5, 8/12, 8/19. Tickets start at $15 and are available at thedevil.brownpapertickets.com. Run Time: 1 hour (No intermission).
