“We are forever brushing up against an invisible world of secrets, an intangible universe of mysteries…”
Inspired by the medieval mystery plays and written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, comic book writer with Marvel and Archie Comics, and screenwriter for Riverdale, Glee and Supergirl. The Mystery Plays is a haunting look at everyday people struggling with life’s big questions.
The Mystery Plays is two interrelated one acts. In The Filmmaker’s Mystery, Joe Manning, a director of horror films, survives a terrible train wreck. As the police investigate Joe, he investigates one of the dead passengers. In Ghost Children, Abby Gilley travels home to make peace with the man who brutally murdered her family – her older brother. Like the original medieval mystery plays, The Mystery Plays wrestles with the most profound of human ideas: the mysteries of death, the afterlife, religion, faith, and forgiveness.
The Mystery Plays was presented at Havana Theatre by Little Mountain Lion Productions December 6th – 10th, 2016
