Now in revival at the Garage Theatre, this early work from Barkerone of the horror genres great mindsis set at an insect-infested swamp in Kenya, where several unwitting people have been plucked to hold trial for Lucifer, one unlucky man must even legally defend him. Satan has decided he wants another crack at Heaven, and in order to do so, he must stand in court. Has the Dark Angel been misunderstood or is he truly evil incarnate? Its the case of the millennium as Satan is either allowed back into Heaven or doomed to remain on Earth for all eternitybrought to you by the Hellraiser himself. where his mortal life is analyzed officially before the unseen jury. From his first fall from Heaven into a Russian Farm, to the present where he comes face to face with his own demons. Nietzsche said god is dead, but the Devil ultimately finds out what that means to him and his verdict. From the man who has said "I want to be remembered as an imaginer, someone who used his imagination as a way to journey beyond the limits of self, beyond the limits of flesh and blood, beyond the limits of even perhaps life itself, in order to discover some sense of order in what appears to be a disordered universe. I'm using my imagination to find meaning, both for myself and, I hope, for my readers..." comes History of the Devil by Clive Barker. The Garage Theatre presents this story by acclaimed Hellraiser author beginning October 1, 2010 and ending October 30, 2010. What's halloween without a good old play, about Satan?
