Seventy Scenes of Halloween
Come celebrate Halloween in true Williamsburg style with an evening of theater from the creators of Some Call Refuge (April 2012). This October, Vaudeville Park hosts The Friends and Enemies of Modern Theater a second time as they present a classic of American postmodern playwriting, Jeffrey Jones’s Seventy Scenes of Halloween.
It’s Halloween night, and Jeff and Joan are a pair of thirty-somethings whose relationship is hitting the skids in the suburbs. Bizarre objects keep appearing on their front porch, and strangers in makeshift costumes are loitering ominously outside their home. Careening through seventy comic and disturbing scenes, the Theater Frenemies unfold an uncanny world of tricks, treats, and other theatrical wonders—one that’s equal parts pagan ritual, horror film, love story, and investigation into America’s bougie-bohemian unconscious.
Spectators arriving in Halloween costumes will receive free candy.
