The Plagues – EXODUS

GHDT’s EXODUS – The Plagues

EXODUS, Gregory Hancock’s newest work will premiere at The Tarkington on April 5-6, 2019. Inspired by the book of Exodus, the second book of the Torah and Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), this production will be a contemporary re-telling, set in “anytime” and “any place,” with the original plaques of Egypt being replaced by contemporary cautionary tales for the modern world. GHDT’s talented cast will inspire the audience through powerful movement and theatrical storytelling. The Original Ten Plagues are exchanged for the Modern Day Ten Plagues. The final plague in both remains the same, to parallel the similarities of the two versions. History repeats itself, though it may not look the same.
