First 2019 play for The Weekend Theater – THE RUNNER STUMBLES

Image may contain: 2 peopleThe Weekend Theater starts 2019 with a mystery.

A young nun has died under mysterious circumstances in a remote parish in northern Michigan, and her superior, Father Rivard, has been charged with her murder. The action alternates between interrogations, testimony, and scenes from the past.

The relationship which forms, inevitably, spells tragedy, but not until the end of the play in which the extent of their sacrifice is made clear and the identity of the murderer is revealed.

This play, by Milan Stitt, has been captivating audiences since it premiered at Hartford Stage in the 1970s. It is directed by: Laurel Burnette

The cast includes Chad Fulmer, Laura Landers, Drew Ellis, Elizabeth Reha, Mikhala Denney, Leigh Baker, Lee Hill, Jerry Green, and Matt White.

The production runs for eight performances over three weeks.
