Photo Flash: The New Colony's SCAPEGOAT; OR (WHY THE DEVIL ALWAYS LOVED US)

The New Colony continues its 2017 Season with the world premiere of Connor McNamara's political thriller SCAPEGOAT; OR (WHY THE DEVIL ALWAYS LOVED US), directed by Kristina Valada-Viars, playing April 14 - May 7, 2017 at The New Colony's resident home, The Den Theatre's Upstairs Main Stage, 1333 N.

SCAPEGOAT; OR (WHY THE DEVIL ALWAYS LOVED US) will feature Echaka Agba, John Kelly Connolly, Barbara Figgins, Jeffery Owen Freelon Jr., Evan Linder, Jack McCabe, Cassidy Slaughter-Mason, Kelli Strickland and Norm Woodel.

Over two generations the Porters have cultivated their legacy as "The New Roosevelts." As a Religious Freedom bill bullies its way through Congress, their political dynasty is suddenly threatened when a story leaks claiming the family patriarch is a Satanist. With his eyes set on a future nomination to the Supreme Court, Anse Porter is forced to choose between having the life he's worked for, and sacrificing all for the people he serves. Loyalties to family, faith, country and self are tested in this twisted story of The Porter Family as they struggle through the wreckage of America's crumbling wall between church and state.

The production team for SCAPEGOAT; OR (WHY THE DEVIL ALWAYS LOVED US) includes: John Wilson (scenic design), Liesl Krieger (costumes design), Heather Sparling (lighting design), Steve Labedz (sound design), Omer Abbas Salem (props design), Becky Warner (production manager) Liam Fitzgerald (technical director) and Zoe Benditt (stage manager).
