A devised piece with Tony award-winning lighting designer Chris Akerlind, directed by Bowdoin College professor, Davis Robinson.

An immersive journey through small-town America looking at the impact of light (and darkness) on people using poetry, music, science facts and scenes from playwright Will Eno’s Middletown. The strange beauty of life and its sometimes unbearable weight are considered with a screwball lyricism in a delicate, moving and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere. 

Free tickets, limited seating. Tickets available at the Smith Union information desk beginning Feb 19 (207-725-3375).  Tickets will also be available at the door.  Tickets expire 15 minutes before performance begins. Patrons must be seated by 6:50 pm.
