Eclypse Theatre Co Presents 'Keith Reddin And The Mythology of America' 12/5

Eclipse Theatre Company's next Playwright Scholar Series event will honor our 2004 playwright Keith Reddin. Eclipse's 2004 season included Big Time, Frame 312 and Brutality of Fact.

Eclipse ensemble members and guest artists will explore the mythology of America through readings from Keith Reddin's works. An intimate discussion with the artists will follow the performance.

We hope you can join us!

"I think of myself as a very American playwright. And when you look at the words that set the American way of life, they are "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." It's not happiness, it's the pursuit of happiness. We have the freedom to pursue happiness but that doesn't mean that we're guaranteed to get it. Happiness is very fleeting; that's a very American theme. We very rarely, if ever, find it. But I enjoy that we have the freedom to pursue it and I think that's what all the plays are about."

-Keith Reddin

Directed by Eclipse ensemble members Sarah Moeller and JP Pierson
