On Site Theatre hopes for strikes with bowling plays
On Site Theatre Company’s newest site-specific venue may be enough to bring out the bowling enthusiast in theater goers and the drama geek in league bowlers.
Set in Epiphany Lanes, a throwback to the days of Catholic Church run bowling alleys, “Bowling Epiphany – The Revival!” is technically a revival for the theater company, as it rerun its first production from 2007. The night will consist of three plays, each pinned to the theme of bowling and, naturally, taking place in bowling alleys.
The plays will not just be strikes and gutters played out ad infinitum, but rather deal with a range of thematic material, from first dates to the eternal struggle between God and Satan, this time played out over 10 frames.
Also this weekend, the Big Muddy Dance Company kicks off its newest season, Webster Groves' community theater runs Cinderella and a visit back to the 1967 Monterey Festival through film.
