AZUSA, CA – The Azusa Pacific University Warehouse Theater presents 7 Stories by Morris Panych, Thurs.–Sun., Feb. 13–23 with matinee showings on Feb. 15, 16, 22, and 23 at 2 p.m. All performances take place at the APU Warehouse Theater, located in the Mary Hill Center, on APU’s West Campus, at 701 E. Foothill Blvd., in Azusa.
7 Stories, directed by Susan Isaacs, is a postmodern existential comedy that follows a man on a ledge as he encounters a menagerie of eccentric characters who demonstrate the lengths to which people will go to create meaning in their lives. The show is recommended for audiences age 12 and up.
Dostoyevsky proposed an idea in The Brothers Karamazov: if there is no God, all things are permissible. The characters on the seventh story live in a world that has long since granted permission to frantically pursue “whatever makes you happy.” It seems Panych has no religious affiliation; yet 7 Stories paints a telling portrait of what the world looks like when we pursue God and realize the terrifying and beautiful mystery we never see if we don’t look for Him.
Azusa Pacific University Theater presents five stage productions for the 2013–14 season, featuring a combination of comedy, drama, and musical performances. For more information, visit the theater’s website at apu.edu/theater.
