News"Incident at Vichy and "Abaddon Abandoned" Performed at Marlboro
Marlboro, VT (Feb. 16, 2007) – Marlboro College seniors Evan Mehler and Christopher Gabriel will present two plays, Incident at Vichy and Abaddon Abandoned, on Friday, March 9 & Saturday, March 10 at 8:00 p.m., and on Sunday March 11 at 2:00 p.m. in Whittemore Theater at Marlboro College.
The plays are shorter than full-length and will be put on back-to-back on each performance date, with Incident at Vichy performed first, followed by Abaddon Abandoned.
Mehler is directing an adaptation of Arthur Miller’s Incident at Vichy, a play about a group of strangers locked up together in a detention center in Vichy, France in 1942. Each person struggles to figure out why they are there while waiting to be interviewed by their Nazi captors.
“Some of them hope for the best while others fear the worst. Each person tries to convince everyone else of their views as they slowly get taken away one by one,” says Mehler.
Gabriel’s play, Abaddon Abandoned, depicts a journey from life to afterlife exploring the deeper meanings of life, death and spirituality through the words of Pablo Neruda, Louis Ginsberg and The Tibetan Book of the Dead.
These Plan performances will be at Marlboro College’s undergraduate campus in Whittemore Theater. Both performances are free of charge and open to the public. The productions are unsuitable for children as they deal with mature thematic elements.
