Salvation Road play soon to be produced in New York City and Louisville, KY

I have seen this play and it is excellent. If you are living in either of these areas please go see it. The information is forwarded from ICSA's Michael Langone:


SALVATION ROAD, a new play by D.W. Gregory about the cult experience, will be produced at the New York University Steinhardt School of Educational Theatre Oct. 26 to Nov. 4. Tickets are $15 and can be obtained online at http://www.nyu.edu/ticketcentral/calendar

An early version of the play was originally presented in a staged reading at the ICSA's 2008 conference in Philadelphia.

THE STORY:

When his hip older sister Denise disappears with members of a fundamentalist church, 17-year-old Cliff Kozak struggles to hold it all together, pretending that he isn't hurt by her decision to cut him out of her life. But a year later, a chance sighting of Denise at a New Jersey strip mall leads Cliff and his best buddy Duffy on a road trip into the heart of a deepening mystery. Why would a smart and talented girl like Denise fall for the hollow promises of a sleazy preacher? Could it be that blind faith is just another term for a desperate need to belong?

Salvation Road also is scheduled for production at Walden Theatre in Louisville, Ky, Nov. 8 to 18. Tickets go on sale three weeks before the production; tickets to public productions are available from the Walden Theatre box office (502) 589-0084.
