Performing Arts - Theater | October 11 – 13, 2018 every day | 8-9 p.m. |  Zellerbach Playhouse

70 SCENES OF HALLOWEEN is a spooky, scrambled, and sly comedy that transforms the unraveling of a marriage into a frighteningly funny romp. A young couple seems set to spend Halloween on their couch in a state of mild boredom. But dark forces emerge and they must contend with ghosts and witches banging on windows and wielding butcher knives.

The turbulent tale is told in 70 brief scenes played out of order, resulting in a wild, dreamlike ride. One minute, the couple is greeting trick-or-treaters, and the next, they are succumbing to inner demons. Husbands becomes wolves, and wives become phantoms in a haunted home that offers a weirdly comical and thought-provoking glimpse into the nature of relationships.

The play is a wonderful concoction", says Director Christopher Herold, "moving from living-room domesticity to a time-warped, altered reality—an opportunity to engage something fresh and unknown.”
