Written by Bill Cain
Directed by Eric C. Engel
Winner of the prestigious Mimi and Harold Steinberg Playwriting Award, 9 Circles is a raw, emotionally charged quest for salvation set against the backdrop of war.
Jimi Stanton, Amanda Collins, and Will McGarrahan all recreate their critically acclaimed roles in a production originally presented by Boston’s Publick Theatre.
9 Circles by Bill Cain is a dramatic interpretation of one man’s metaphorical journey through the sins of Hell. This powerful story, right from today’s headlines, examines the impact of war. Pvt. Daniel Edward Reeves’ state of mind is in question throughout this play and it asks what are the consequences that a country must face when it fails to carefully examine its soldiers’ sanity? “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here,” Dante reminds us in his Inferno. Sins comitted during wartime can be forgiven under certain circumstances. The question remians: does the sinner forgive himself? If he is aware of the crime, is he really insane? What journey through Hell could leave a man capable of hope?
