Main Street Theater presents The Book of Magdalene
Main Street Theater presents the initial digital premiere of The Book of Magdalene by Caridad Svich, the first ever showing of her new work.
In the edge-lands, in the weird times (after a worldwide catastrophic event), it’s nighttime until it’s not. These nights, Magdalene misses Ru and who they could have been together. Magdalene cares for Elder. Magdalene visits the local church to look at the sky. Magdalene works the call lines of the lonely and encounters Suit. Call this a quest. Call this a life waiting to be born again, haunted by a past when another Magdalene lived and was misunderstood. The Book of Magdalene is contemporary drama of sharp encounters, winding faith, tough love and tenderness suffused with grace and magic. A story about finding the courage to move on when life feels as if it is stuck in place.
The production was staged and filmed at Main Street Theater; it will be available to view online at any time, February 11-28.
