TODAY, Unity Productions opens with its latest production, The Misfits!
About THE MISFITS…
The Lonely. The Cheated. The Mistreated. The Junkie. The Washed Up. The Put Down. The No Good. The Hopeless. The Secretive.
No matter who you are or what you are, you relate to at least one of these types. Feeling different. Feeling othered. Feeling separated from all…even yourself.
At the end of their rope, the misfits–individually–find themselves in the valley of a seeming despair, a loneliness so stark, so deep that no light, no help can filter through. At least, that’s what they think. Each one has come to this place for a single reason, a final decision. Because of the pain inside caused by mistreatment, abuse and shame, they have selected this valley to be the place to commit suicide. But there is one, one who dwells in the valley of the shadow of death that meets each of these misfits and teaches them that with love and with community, they can weather any and every storm, look past their differences, their ignorance–even hatred, and extend brotherly-kindness.
And because of these lessons, they will come to know that being a misfit is a badge of honor–not a stain of embarrassment and self-hatred.
The Misfits will run every weekend of October at the following times: Fridays at 6 p.m. SLT, Saturdays at 2 p.m. SLT, and Sundays at 4 p.m. SLT.
All performances will be at UP’s theatre!
Hope to see you there!
