Logan High School presents The Idiot
November 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$5 – $7
Opening night for The Idiot is November 16th! This adaptation of the Dostoevsky novel asks us the question, “Can a perfect person save a corrupt society?”
Returning to St. Petersburg from a Swiss sanatorium, the gentle and naive Prince Myshkin – known as ‘the idiot’ – pays a visit to his distant relative General Yepanchin and proceeds to charm the General, his wife and his three daughters. But his life is thrown into turmoil when he chances on a photograph of the beautiful Nastasya Filipovna. Utterly infatuated with her, he soon finds himself caught up in a love triangle and drawn into a web of blackmail and betrayal.
Shows are Thursday, November 16 at 7:30pm, Saturday, November 18 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, November 19 at 2:00pm in the Logan High School Theatre. The production is being performed in an intimate setting, with the audience seated on the stage in a thrust-style theatre. Patrons may remember this style of theatre from the 2013 LHS production of Who Will Carry the Word? Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, and are available in the high school athletic office or online at www.tinyurl.com/LoganTheatre. Seating is limited, so advance purchase of tickets is highly recommended.
Patrons are advised that The Idiot contains some language and mature content. The Idiot is not suitable for children.
