CRT Concludes Season with Modern Comedy ‘End Days’

 Clackamas Repertory Theatre concludes its eighth season with the modern comedy “End Days” by Deborah Zoe Laufer, opening Friday, Sept. 21, in the Osterman Theatre. 

 Winner of the 2008 American Theatre Critics Association Steinberg Citation, “End Days” is a comedy about a family struggling to negotiate life in an increasingly unpredictable world. The play combines Rachel, a Goth girl; Sylvia, her evangelizing, born-again mom; Arthur, her post-9/11 depressed dad; Nelson an Elvis-loving teenager; Jesus, and Stephen Hawking, and renders the combination hilarious as the family is forced to make choices about what it holds most sacred when the end might be near. In fact, if Sylvia is to be believed, the Apocalypse is next Wednesday.

Directed by CRT company member Annie Rimmer, “End Days” brings back Doren Elias as Arthur. Elias played Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof” and George in “Virginia Woolf.” The production also features company members Jayson Shanafelt as Jesus and Stephen Hawking, and Cyndy Smith-English as Sylvia.

Bill Briare, CCC dean of Arts and Science and former religious studies instructor,  will deliver a pre-show lecture:  “Eschaton: The End of the World in History and Popular Belief, " on September 22, 23, 27, 28 and 30. The lecture starts 45 minutes before curtain. 

Debuting on CRT’s stage are former CCC Theatre Department acting students Emily Robison as Rachael and Michael Lissman as Nelson.

“End Days” runs through Thursday through Sunday through October 7.  Evening performances Thursdays through Saturdays begin at 7:30 p.m. with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Sundays. All performances are in the Osterman Theatre at Clackamas Community College. Tickets may be purchased at www.clackamasrep.org or by calling 503-594-6047.
