Williamston explores religion and controversy in ‘These Mortal Hosts’ March 26–April 26

Preview March 14, 2020 Encore Staff

WILLIAMSTON—Williamston Theatre presents the Michigan Premiere of These Mortal Hosts by Eric Coble. Performances begin Thursday, March 26 and run through Sunday, April 26.

After a tragedy devastates tiny Dove Creek, Colorado, the mysteries begin. Earl can’t explain the change coming over him … Phyllis knows the impossible has become possible … and Meaghan is trying to decipher the instructions coming from the voices she hears. Three seemingly random strangers find themselves thrust together at the center of the mysteries as their lives, and bodies, hurtle toward events far beyond their comprehension. Whatever is happening, the whole town is suddenly swept up in events of epic proportion. The question is: Are they preparing for a miracle, or are they succumbing to collective madness? (Contains adult language and content.)

The cast features one newcomer to the Williamston Theatre stage, MSU student Anna Ryzenga, along with Mark Colson and Emily Sutton-Smith. Paige Conway is the director. The production team includes scenic cesign by Bartley H. Bauer, lighting design by Dustin D. Miller, costume design by Holly Iler, sound design by Julia Garlotte, props design by Michelle Raymond and projections design by Rachel Tuba. The stage manager is Stefanie Din.
