SACRED BLOOD and THE BOOR

The Ellice Theatre, May 29 to 30, 2009
Artwork for SACRED BLOOD and THE BOOR

An Evening of Comedy & Tragedy...
TWO ONE-ACT PLAYS BACK-TO-BACK!

SACRED BLOOD, by Zinaida Gippius. Directed by John Chase.
"Blood runs cold in the veins of a RUSALKA - the mermaid of Russian lore. This mature drama tells the tale of one who forsakes her own kind to have a human soul ... and sacrifices everything to learn the meaning of love."

THE BOOR, by Anton Chekhov. Directed by Tony Frost.
"A boorish creditor wants his money today, a headstrong widow won't pay until tomorrow, and one poor servant is caught in the middle... A battle of the sexes may come to pistols in this explosive Chekhov comedy!"
