RED LIGHT WINTER / 25 SAINTS

In Repertory:
Red Light Winter by Adam Rapp
25 Saints by Joshua Rollins
directed by Desdemona Chiang

In Red Light Winter, former college buddies Matt and Davis take off to the Netherlands and find themselves entangled in a bizarre love triangle with a beautiful, young prostitute named Christina. The romance they find in Europe unravels their friendship back home, and all three are forced to confront unexpected consequences resulting from their one night together. Written with a harsh, poetic beauty, Red Light Winter is a stunning story of obsession, isolation, and the desperate need for people to fulfill their hunger for intimacy.

25 Saints ┬áis the story of Charlie and Tuck, a pair of Appalachian meth peddlers in rural Virginia who, on a very bad night, find themselves being hunted by corrupt local law enforcement after they shoot and kill the deputy. The play focuses on a group forgotten people who, when not plastered on CNN when a coal mine collapses, are left to fend for themselves. It is a grim look into a world of poverty that makes folks resort to crime and violence that many of us can choose to ignore–these are desperate souls struggling to survive in a hostile place, who have no options, who have run out of time.
