October 30 - November 1

London, 1665. Ravaged by a terrifying and inexplicable plague, a few doctors and a handful of citizens struggle to respond to a pandemic that threatens to engulf them. Heartbreaking, bitterly funny and deeply moving, The Living celebrates the power of courage and compassion to combat uncertainty and fear. Anthony Clarvoe’s masterful drama takes its inspiration from the first-person testimonies and Daniel Defoe’s novel, A Journal of the Plague Year.

Originally produced by The Denver Center Theater Company.

Performances of The Living will be broadcast online. For tickets, please visit the Ferguson Center for the Arts at the link below or call (757) 594-7088 for more information.
