Falcon’s Eye play emphasizes goodness

Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /www/villagelife.com/html/wp-includes/option.php on line 85

FOLSOM — The Falcon’s Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College announces its fall 2011 performance of Bertolt Brecht’s timeless parable “The Good Person of Szechwan,” the first production of the Falcon’s Eye’s fifth full season.

The play tells the story of a young woman, who is forced into prostitution by poverty, is rewarded handsomely after opening her home to three visiting gods. By disproving the gods’ contention that no goodness still exists on earth, the woman is given a small business by the gods and from there she struggles to work honestly and to provide for the needy. After falling victim to unscrupulous neighbors and a dishonest lover, she is forced to create a fierce, manipulative and efficient alter-ego — that of her strong-willed business-savvy male “cousin.” Will the forces of capitalism overwhelm her, or will she maintain her goodness in a world of corruption?

Director David Harris will lead cast members Danelle Aros, Nita Christi, Jeremy Kaderka, Molly Miller, Gavin Sellers and Paul Scott with Scott Gilbert as production designer and technical director, Rebecca Redmond as costume designer and Samia LaVirgne as assistant director. Original music is composed by Ian McGlone and Claire Alano is the production’s choreographer.

“The Good Person of Szechwan” opens on Friday, Oct. 28, and will continue through Sunday, Nov. 13. Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays with a special 8 p.m. show on Thursday, Nov. 10. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 students and seniors as well as bargain shows — all tickets $5 — on Nov. 5 and 10.
