PULLMAN – The WSU Department of Theatre and Dance will present “End Days” at 7:30 p.m. April 15-17 in Daggy Hall’s Jones Theatre.
The play is written by Deborah Z. Laufer and directed by theatre professor Terry Converse. Cast members include William C. Stevens, Elinor Gunn, Syleanna Campbell, Dana Bensel, Ray Pritchard and Jared Chastain.
“End Days” is the story of a family stunned by the attacks on Sept. 11. The mother is a born-again Christian, the father is in a catatonic state and their 16-year-old daughter Rachel is trying out the gothic style of clothes and makeup. Who will save this family? Jesus? Stephen Hawking? Or will it be Nelson Steinberg, Rachel’s awkward new classmate who shows up at their door in his Elvis jumpsuit? The play is a quirky yet melancholy story about one family trying to cope with tragedy.
