Heaven and Hell
Multiple performances nightly
Advance purchase required
Heaven and Hell adapts the story of The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Fisherman and His Soul, by Oscar Wilde. With limited spoken dialogue and set in the studios of 1715-1717 Wyandotte including The Aquarium, The Fishtank, Heidi Van's private studio and Peregrine Honig's private studio, audience travels with a narrative guide through the spaces.
Heaven and Hell's presentational form is considered promenade theatre, in which the audience walks through a variety of theatrically designed rooms, as well as environmental theatre, in which the physical location, rather than being a traditional playhouse, is an imitation of the actual setting.
Conceived and directed by Heidi Van. Presented in collaboration with UMKC Theatre as part of the UMKC Intensive Theatre Project.
