Flying Anvil Theatre: Crimes of the Heart

  • March 7, 2019 — March 24, 2019

Category: Theatre

This Pulitzer Prize winning play chronicles a reunion of the three Magrath sisters, who are back together in their Mississippi hometown for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, never left home...she is the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom in Hollywood, but only found solace at the bottom of a bottle. And Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for shooting her abusive husband. Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi sun, past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart".
*The show is rated PG for some mature language.

"Southern Gothic humor at its sublime best…" - NY Times

“Henley weaves a tale of utter poignancy amid heavy doses of black comedy...These endearing yet wacky sisters endure a day that goes from bad to worse, but we laugh with them, not at them." - Chicago Tribune

"It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion that must carry all before it…it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in the theatre not to see this play." - NY Post.

March 8 through 24 - Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm.
One pay-what-you-can preview on March 7 at 7:30 pm.
TICKET PRICES: Thu & Sun $22 ($16 for students with ID); Fri & Sat $24 ($16 for students with ID)

River & Rail Theatre Company: Every Brilliant Thing

Category: Theatre

RIVER & RAIL THEATRE CO. is proud to announce the return of Every Brilliant Thing
in The Green Room at Jackson Avenue Terminal
Group ticket rates available for groups of ONLY 5 OR MORE.

A THREE-PERSON-ONE-PERSON-SHOW?
In May, 2017, Joshua Peterson starred in our two-week run of this moving, hilarious, spontaneous roller coaster one-man show about everything from family, to depression & suicide, to falling in love; and about what it's like to be determined to find “everything brilliant about the world, everything worth living for.” Since we did this show two years ago, people have begged us to bring it back. So, we're bringing it back! This time, though, we have three actors to play a one-person show...

WAIT. HOW? AND WHY?
Each show will rotate actors, so that one of our three diverse voices will play the role each evening. Why? Because depression doesn’t discriminate. Come feel the beauty and brilliance of this story with us. #BrilliantThings
Get your tickets now!

Critics from NYC to London have fallen in love with Every Brilliant Thing. We are spellbound by this intimate, poignant story and are thrilled to share it with our Knoxville community.
"EVERY BRILLIANT THING finds the perfect balance between conveying the struggles of life, and celebrating all that is sweet in it." - The Independent, London
“A life-affirming gem… as profound a work as you are ever likely to experience on a New York stage.” - NY1
"Heart-wrenching, hilarious...possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop." - The Guardian, UK
"Filled to the brim with joy...beautiful, heart wrenching and very funny." - Time Out London
