The Turtle Theater Collective is performing the U.S. premier of the play: Almighty Voice and his Wife this weekend at the Southern Theater, 1420 S. Washington Ave.
According to promotion materials, the play is based on a foundational text of the Native American canon. Almighty Voice and his Wife “tells the story of a Cree man arrested for killing a cow. Under threat of hanging, he escapes — unleashing a year-long manhunt that gives rise to his status as a martyr and a legend. The playwright re-imagines this true story within two wildly different acts, moving from a sweeping Western romance to an outlandish white-faced minstrel show.”
The show times are: Friday March 9th 7:30p.m., Saturday March 10th 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. , and Sunday March 11th at 2 p.m. The play runs about 85 minutes. General admission is $20 in advance or $24 at the door; students and seniors: $12.
