THE DARK AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS - Senior Multi-Media Project

Where University Commons, 170, MainStage Theater

Duration 2 hours

Senior Visual and Communications Arts major Dylan Bomgardner brings to life a theater standard devised with live and recorded video.

The Dark at the Top of the Stairs

Meet the Flood family in small town Oklahoma in the early 1920s.

Rubin, a traveling salesman for a failing company, along with wife, Cora; son, Sonny; and teen daughter, Reenie, all face their unknown demons – marital problems, social insecurities, religious intolerance – in “The Dark at the Top of the Stairs.” Can we dissipate the darkness if we practice compassion, acceptance and understanding?

MainStage Theater – Thursday and Friday evenings at 7:30 pm. Saturday at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

General admission tickets at the door are $5. EMU and Bridgewater student tickets are $2 with ID.
