CAT Theatre’s second production of their 51st season will be Book of Days which runs January 23 through February 7, 2015. Book of Days is CAT’s submission to the 2015 Acts of Faith Festival. Acts of Faith talk back sessions will be held following the performances on January 24 and February 2.
Book of Days, by Pulitzer Prize winner Lanford Wilson is an exploration of faith, justice, and corruption, amidst the backdrop of murder- and community theatre- in small town America. Book of Days was first written for and produced by Jeff Daniels Purple Rose Theatre Company of Michigan. Alvin Klein of The New York Times said, “Mr. Wilson’s cosmic consciousness, intense moral concern, sense of human redemption and romantic effusion have climbed to a new peak.”
Director Leslie Cline says, “I think that this play is ultimately about where people choose to place their faith- in themselves, in God, in others- and how that faith affects their lives. This play raises many questions, starts many conversations, without actually giving many concrete answers. I love that aspect. It is perfect for the Acts of Faith festival and talkbacks, because there are so many directions the conversation can go."
