Trick or Treat?: Jeffrey M. Jones’ “Seventy Scenes of Halloween” at Manbites Dog Has a Little of Both
Trick or treat? Manbites Dog Theater’s inaugural production, “Seventy Scenes of Halloween” by Jeffrey M. Jones has a little of both. First staged in December of 1987 and repeated on Nov. 29-Dec. 1 and Dec. 6-9, 12-13, and 15, 2012, under the new direction of Akiva Fox and Adam Sobsey, “Seventy Scenes of Halloween” mixes mirth with terror in a series numbered scenes, performed almost completely out of order. That’s the play’s principal gimmick, and it can be confusing as to what is real and what is a dream, etc.
In celebration of 25 seasons of producing cutting-edge theater in the Bull City, Manbites Dog Theater will reprise its very first production, “Seventy Scenes of Halloween” by Jeffrey M. Jones, on Nov. 29-Dec. 1 and Dec. 6-9, 12-13, and 15. Akiva Fox and Adam Sobsey will co-direct a cast that includes Emily Hill, Carl Martin, Dan VanHoozer, and Amber J. Wood.
