In cooperation with Richardson/Yale Property Trust; Elliot S. Blair, administrator 
A rousing tale of love and the supernatural, told with swing and spirit.  Based on the  haunting folk ballad of “Barbara Allen,” DARK OF THE MOON recounts the story of John, a strange "witch boy” who falls in love with the beautiful Barbara Allen. He is given human form to woo and marry her on the condition that she remain faithful to him for one year, but trouble ensues. Barbara is led to betray John, breaking their spell of love, and he must return forever to the world of the mountain witches. Set in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, DARK OF THE MOON is a tall tale told with gusto, woven together with folk music, adding up to an engaging evening in the theatre.

“Dark of the Moon” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Drama, 96 Beech St., Berea

Picking up where we left off with last year's acclaimed production of Part One, King Henry's health is failing but he is uncertain Prince Hal is a worthy heir.  Meanwhile, Falstaff is sent to the countryside to recruit fresh troops, where he gleefully indulges in the business of lining his own pockets.  As the King's health continues to worsen, Hal must choose between duty and loyalty to an old friend in Shakespeare's heartbreaking conclusion to this pair of plays.
