Godlight Theatre Company (1984, A Clockwork Orange, Fahrenheit 451, Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five) celebrates its 20th Anniversary with the world premiere adaptation of James Dickey's novel Deliverance, directed by Godlight's Artistic Director Joe Tantalo.
In this heart stopping tour-de-force, a mildly adventurous canoe trip explodes into a nightmare of horror and murder. Men stalk and are stalked by other men and the treacherous river becomes a graveyard for those without the strength or the luck to survive.
Godlight Theatre Company was formed for the purposes of fostering community appreciation for drama and the performing arts. Godlight is committed to bring new and underperformed texts to the stage by creating original adaptations of modern classical literature from the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as commissioning new dramatic works from emerging talent. The ensemble and creative team of Godlight Theatre Company explore new plays informed by the issues of life in contemporary America.
