Life and How to Live It

Are we bound for glory or not?

No one can accuse Cormac McCarthy of being a feel-good writer. McCarthy's works contain a pervasive sense of doom and desperation, but the richness with which he writes makes his fiction a harrowing but compelling read. In The Sunset Limited two nameless characters enter into a protracted discussion about life, death, suicide and the presence (or absence) of God in modern life. Think of it as Waiting for Godot set in a squalid New York City apartment. Soundstage Productions presents a Theatre of the Mind production (similar to a staged reading but more theatrical) of The Sunset Limited at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (August 14 through 23) at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; www.soundstageproductions.net). Tickets are $12 and can be reserved by calling 314-968-8070.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Aug. 14. Continues through Aug. 23, 2008
