Theatre Showcase: Card Table Serves Up "a Post-apocalyptic Sacrilegious Tragic Comedy with Basketball."

Yes, we mentioned this weekend's big theatrical event yesterday, but it's getting a full showcase today before it premieres Friday and Saturday at 8:00 at the Lawrence Arts Center.

We all know that LFK's Card Table Theatre can deliver on the funny business, but it's exciting to see them venture into headier, uncharted waters with more ambitious projects such as this weekend's "Some Things You Need To Know Before the World Ends (A Final Evening With the Illuminati)."  

Aside from being  "a post-apocalyptic sacrilegious tragic comedy with basketball," what's this crazy thing about. Let's turn to the official press release for a quick summary:

"The erratic Reverend Eddie and his helpful, if alarming, manservant, Brother Lawrence, prepare for their most monumental and awe-inspiring sermon to-date. Along the way, Reverend Eddie battles power failures,nerve gas, and his growing fear of the all powerful Illuminati – exacerbated  by Eddie's visions of Saint Paul, a holy choir, and the Grim Reaper. Discover the true meaning of existence and check out Death's slammin’ hook shot..."

Director Jeremy Auman sent us a photo from a recent rehearsal and this blurb: "[The show is] more gritty and emotional than what people maybe are used to seeing from us and it is technically amazing."
