The Vermillion Community Theater is presenting a two-man show titled Some Things You Should Know Before the World Ends (A Final Evening with the Illuminati), written by Larry Larson and Levi Lee.
The show, starring Ben Nesselhuf and Joel Miron, will be presented Nov. 1 – 4, at 8 p.m., in the Washington Street Arts Center in Vermillion. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $10.
The play is set in a bombed-out, post-holocaust sanctuary of a church where the Reverend Eddie (Ben Nesselhuf) prepares to deliver his final sermon. Abetted by his faithful helper, the hunchbacked Brother Lawrence (Joel Miron), Reverend Eddie first embarks on a series of wildly funny skits in which Saint Paul and Saint Timothy discuss the shaky position of women in religion; an applicant for sainthood agonizes over what form of martyrdom to pursue; and the Reverend challenges the Devil to a final showdown on the basketball court. And, throughout, there is the unseen but undeniable presence of the Illuminati, a mysterious, all-powerful force which guides the destiny of what's left of the world.
