A Devil Inside, by David Lindsay-Abair

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University Theater Department presents A Devil Inside, by David Lindsay-Abair, directed by Tom Darnall.

 "Murder, gore and psychosis, all purposeful and funny..." -NY Times. After 14 years Mrs. Slater greets her son, Gene, on his 21st birthday with the usual good wishes and then gets to the point. "Your father was murdered. He was stabbed in the back and his feet were lopped off and thrown into a drainage ditch." Thus begins a comic and twisted journey of obsession and revenge.

Set in New York's Lower East Side, this frantic dark comedy satirizes elements of 19th-century Russian novels, complete with seizures, hallucinations, a flooding city, nightmares, train wrecks and suicide.

The production runs February 17-19 at 7:30 PM, February 20 at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM, and February 21 at 2:00 PM. Tickets: call (320)363-5777.
