Packed with disasters, demons, giants and scenes of unforgettable awe and terror, the Book of Genesis has inspired centuries of artists, from the likes of John Milton (1667's Paradise Lost) to Darren Aronofsky (2014's Noah). Now Timothy Gregory, founding director of Provision Theater, has created Jacob, a new work based on that ancient text. A retelling of the story of Jacob, the Hebrew patriarch who wrestled with God, this play focuses on the Isaacson twins, brothers consumed by a deadly secret and a murderous rivalry. Everything comes to a head when one brother's dark world of fear, manipulation and deception collides with a supernatural force of truth and redemption. Gregory and Lia Mortensen co-direct this world premiere at Provision Theater. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Written By Larry Shue
Directed By Tim Gregory
This award-winning comedy classic is based on a devilishly clever idea, demonstrating what can happen when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who (they think) knows no English! The fact that he does fuels the non-stop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go ridiculously awry for the “bad guys” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant. A constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life,_ The Foreigner_ has quickly become one of America’s favorite comedies!
This production is suitable for adult and teen audiences.
