Life of Earth: Variations on the Theme of the Sacred and Profane –

Axial Theatre Spring Production Debuts May 1 

Imagine, if you may, an old American Bar and Grill. A place that is elevated from the dictatorship of time, decorated by the emotional reality of the souls inhabiting it. The air is filled with longing, hope and the loneliness of the human condition. Tables and chairs don't match, drinks are rarely served and the walls are filled with portraits of people no one has ever known. The bar is a place for those lost souls who come to gather and relinquish in the monotony existence and waiting for their own personal saving grace.

This is the setting for the characters in the monologues and short plays inspired by the theme "the sacred and the profane."

Performances May 1st - May 18th

Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 4 pm.


Tickets are $20, $15 for students/seniors.  

Tickets for opening night, Saturday, May 3, including wine and hors d’oeuvres and a talk-back with writers and directors following the show are $35.

The production will take place at the theatre company’s space at:
8 Sunnyside Ave., St. John’s Episcopal Church in Pleasantville, New York.
For reservations, please call 1-800-838-3006.
