“©Sullivan” opens at ASU


November 14, 2002

WHAT: The Herberger College Department of Theatre at ASU presents, “©Sullivan, or, The Place Where People Come to Die.”

Eric Sullivan, a man with a mysterious past, returns to his hometown – where the only commerce is themed funeral homes, where virgin births are right around the corner and God speaks Esperanto. Eric has a big surprise for the town, which coincidentally bears his last name, one that drives the citizens of Sullivan to more insidious designs. A dark comedy, “©Sullivan” critiques fairy tales, Americana and fate.

This play is written by Luke Krueger, a graduate student in the MFA Playwriting program in the Herberger College of Fine Arts Department of Theatre at ASU. This play is his thesis project. Directed by playwright Brian Borowka, an alumnus of the program. 
“The play is a dark comedy often described as a cross between Friedrich Durrenmatt’s “The Visit” and “South Park,” with a bit of Dennis Miller,” says Krueger. “Nothing, and I mean nothing, is sacred in this fast-paced satire. It is not for the faint of heart.” Although shocking and funny, this play is the type of drama that Krueger says will “follow you home and haunt you while you try to fall asleep.” 

This play is not appropriate for children. Obviously.
