Production History

1984  | Open: 03/13/09 Close: 04/19/09
Critically acclaimed Godlight Theatre Company, “which has made a specialty of exuberant, muscular adaptations of literate science fiction” (New York Times), tackles George Orwell’s classic novel 1984.

1984 is a chronicle of one man’s struggle against the ubiquitous, menacing state power Big Brother that tries to dictate nearly every aspect of human life. A classic in dystopian fiction and a trenchant political satire, 1984 resonates with themes as salient today as they were when this novel was first written.

1984 features Katherine Boynton (Fahrenheit 451, Church at the Public), Enid Cortes (Blindness), Gregory Konow (Fahrenheit 451, Slaughterhouse Five), Deanna McGovern (Slaughterhouse Five), Dustin Olson (Slaughterhouse Five), Nick Paglino (Blindness, Slaughterhouse Five), Aaron Paternoster (Slaughterhouse Five), Michael Shimkin (Blindness and Slaughterhouse Five), Scarlett Thiele (Neighborhood Playhouse), Michael Tranzilli (Fahrenheit 451, Slaughterhouse Five) and Sammy Tunis (Futurity at the Zipper).

And he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames...never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid. Then Guy met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. And Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do....
John Ball's In The Heat Of The Night  | Open: 03/19/10 Close: 04/25/10
Don’t miss the first-ever stage adaptation of the famous story adapted by Matt Pelfrey and directed by Joe Tantalo for his acclaimed, award-winning Godlight Theatre Company, returning for their sixth season at 59E59 Theaters. It’s 1962. A hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama. A dead white man is discovered and the local police arrest a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs. The police discover that their prime suspect is in fact a homicide detective from California. As it happens, Tibbs becomes the racially-tense community’s single hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives and no clues.
