At the Hour of Midnight (Festival Reading #5)
At the Hour of Midnight
Written by Chris Kaminstein
Directed by Amy Lytle

The end is nigh. And nigh. And nigh.
In 1950s Minnesota a group of curious seekers have gathered under the guidance of Ethel Hind to bring in the end of the world. The group is devoted to their UFO magazines, and to Ethel's 'automatic writings', in which she communicates directly with beings from another planet. As Ethel's predictions fail to materialize the group goes through some curious cognitive dissonance, becoming more committed to the message rather than less.

Due to Hollins University's Culture of Care protocols regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, all audience members will be required to show proof of full vaccination (either two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson) and at least one booster AT THE DOOR to attend a performance. Everyone is also required to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times while in the theatre.

Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwright's Lab. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen theatre professionals as respondents from as far away as Los Angeles and from as close as right here in Roanoke. Many of the plays that first saw public viewing at our summer reading festival have gone on to be published and produced by major companies. Get acquainted with these plays, playwrights, actors and directors before they are famous! You'll also be helping to develop these new works by engaging in the conversation with our students, faculty, and guest artists.
