Black Box Theatre
adapted by Sherman L. Sergel
Behind closed doors, tensions run high as a lone juror argues the innocence of a teenager accused of murder. In this provocatively resonant American drama, 12 jurors from all walks of life revisit the evidence, debate the issue of reasonable doubt, and confront each other's personal biases. A story as relevant today as was the 1957 film that inspired it. Performed by FHU faculty, staff, and alumni. Directed by Hannah Graves.

The routine of a mid-19thcentury Shaker community is shaken when a young convert has an ecstatic experience. Her visions ignite a spiritual awakening and soon all the young women are receiving spiritual “gifts” that challenge religious orthodoxy. Set within the music and dance of traditional Shaker life, “As It Is In Heaven” beautifully portrays the sincere search for wonder within the life of the spirit. Directed by R. Cliff Thompson.

When the legendary pastor of Houston’s Rock Baptist Church decides to retire, an up-and-coming preacher answers the call to fill the great man’s place behind the pulpit. The trouble starts when the church’s aging leader clings to his own dynasty -- and his coveted 10 a.m. television broadcast. Rambo’s play balances the temptations of worldly success, empire building, and church politics with the desire for true faith and personal integrity. Directed by David Fonville.

This adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story chronicles the slowly decaying mental state of a wife and mother whose well-meaning husband discourages her from writing as a cure for her “temporary nervous depression.” Feeling trapped in her bedroom, the woman discovers a figure trapped in the wallpaper of the room. Her efforts to free this figment drive her mad. A psychological thriller and a cautionary tale, “The Yellow Wallpaper” is directed by Jessica Clevenger and designed by Brandyn Graves.
A devised work created by R. Cliff Thompson, Brandyn Graves, and a cast of eight actors. ALICE! celebrates what is unique about live theatre by exploring who Alice is as she climbs through the mirror or plunges down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. Her adventure is told through dance, song, story, and percussion. Can she restore the fragments of her self? Come and see.
