Convergence-Continuum continues its 2012 Season with the Ohio premiere of DEVIL BOYS FROM BEYOND, opening tonight, May 4th. This is the second play in convergence-continuum's three-play series "Cosmic Conundrums Curiously Considered."
Each play in the series deals with big issues (our place in the universe, relationship to the infinite, is anyone out there, existence itself) in a different, cutting-edge, engaging manner: from the dense linguistic gymnastics of poet/playwright Mac Wellman's The Hyacinth Macaw, to Craig Wright's space/timebending dark comedy Grace, to the camp hilarity of Buddy Thomas and Kenneth Elliott's
Devil Boys from Beyond.
It's 1957, and hard-boiled, New York reporter Matilda Van Buren is assigned, along with boozing ex-husband photographer Gregory Graham, to investigate reports of flying saucers in the mysterious swamplands of Lizard Lick, Florida-the hickest hick-town in all of America. Strange things are going on there. The fat, lazy men of Lizard Lick are being replaced by hunky muscled studs, and the withered old townswomen seem to be having a field day. To make matters worse, arch-rival gossip-columnist Lucinda Marsh is on the prowl to scoop the story.
Devil Boys From Beyond is directed by converge-continuum's Artistic Director, Clyde Simon and
features actors Amy Bistok-Bunce, Grey Cross, Tim Coles, Clint Elston, Geoffrey Hoffman, Zac Hudak and Jonathan Wilhelm.
Devil Boys From Beyond opens Friday, May 4 and runs at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through June 2 at the Liminis, 2438 Scranton Rd., Cleveland, OH 44113. Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for seniors and $10 for students. For reservations and information visit www.convergence-continuum.org or call 216-687-0074.
