Directed by Jaybird O’Berski and performed by Lexie Braverman and Matthew Hager, The Stonewater Rapture is an emotionally-charged, hour-long, two-person play that brings to fore the issues of God, sex, and the world between. Whitney, the well-meaning son of the local minister, and Carlyle, a vivacious eighteen-year-old girl with deep religious devotion and a lively imagination, are conflicted. Whitney is concerned with how his lack of sexual experience is affecting his reputation, while Carlyle is very much pleased with her piety, though also admits to sexual curiosities of her own. The play’s initial humor and crackling dialogue turn serious when Carlyle presents a life-changing experience to Whitney. Together, they struggle to wed their religious doctrine with the often-painful complexities of the real world.
This production features original music composed and performed by Ancora Music Production’s Marc Celestini. Music begins at 7:30 PM.
