Canterbury Cathedral, setting for Murder in the Cathedral's murder

Murder in the Cathedral

Area Churches

Friday, March 10, through Saturday, March 25

On Friday, March 10, at Davenport’s Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Genesius Guild will open its traveling production of author T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral – the first of five area-church presentations directed by Guild founder Don Wooten.

There are so many things that are unusual about that sentence that it’s probably best to break it down bit by bit.

To begin with: Yes, the company known for its summertime stagings of classical theatre is indeed producing a rare out-of-season offering, and yes, the March 10 through 25 performances will take place not in Rock Island’s Lincoln Park, but rather churches in Davenport, Muscatine, Moline, Rock Island, and Clinton.

“I was told that Trinity was interested in my doing something for their 175th anniversary,” says Wooten. “I said, ‘Well, I guess that’s Murder in the Cathedral, which we did there last time, for the 150th, 25 years ago. And I thought as long as we were doing it there, we might as well do it a few other places. We probably could have expanded quite a bit, but I figured five was enough.”

If, however, it seems odd that the company venerated for its classical-Greek and Shakespeare productions would tackle a script that isn’t even 100 years old – Eliot’s play having debuted in 1935 – Murder in the Cathedral actually fits right in the Guild wheelhouse. Not only is it a verse drama concerning historical events that took place in 1170, but Eliot’s re-imagining of the assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket, as Wooten says, finds its author “obviously following the lead of Greek tragedy by incorporating something like a Greek chorus.”

Eliot’s history play finds that chorus foreshadowing Becket’s murder amidst the archbishop’s dealings with priests, knights, and a quartet of insidious “tempters. “And although Becket was indeed slain in a cathedral, you might think that local churches would be ill-fitting venues for Guild’s springtime offering. Not so, says Wooten.

“Theatre began in religion,” he says. “It was worship of Dionysus, where they did the choral odes, that started it. And then Thespis, instead of singing about the gods, pretended he was the god – and the people who saw it thought, ‘That’s terrific.’ And thus came theatre.

“The Christian church, of course, then killed the theatre because it was immoral,” Wooten continues. “But then it came back to life in the church again because they found that since they were doing the masses in Latin, the illiterate congregation didn’t know what the heck was doing on. So they acted out the scene at the tomb, and everybody thought, ‘Wow.’ Then it spills out of the churches and into the marketplace, and then here comes Shakespeare and Molière ... . It’s that ‘wow’ you get from the people who see it that keeps theatre going.”

With its 16-person ensemble including such Genesius Guild veterans as Doug Adkins, Don Faust, Tyler Henning, Michael King, Rae Mary, Melita and Phillip Tunnicliff, and James Loula (the latter in a role enacted by his father James Sr. 25 years ago), Wooten calls his directorial offering a tale of “the great scandal of the Middle Ages – a serious play, with a kind of unconscious comedy, that gets down to some really human stuff.”

And if, for his many admirers, the final surprise of this article’s opener is Wooten directing Murder in the Cathedral just a few months after his October retirement party, don’t think he’s done with Guild duties quite yet.

“I agreed to continue writing the comedies until I drop,” he says of his satirical, summer-ending slapsticks, with Wooten’s take on Aristophanes’ The Clouds landing this August. “That one’s about education, and it’s pretty fixed as it is. But with [Betsy] DeVos in there now, who knows? That may change the whole tenor of things.”

[March 8 update: The previously scheduled March 16 performance in Muscatine has been cancelled.]

In addition to its March 10 staging at Davenport’s Trinity Episcopal Cathedral (121 West 12th Street), Murder in the Cathedral will be performed on March 18 at Moline’s First Congregational Church (2201 Seventh Avenue); on March 19 at Rock Island’s St. John’s Lutheran Church (4501 Seventh Avenue); and on March 25 at Clinton’s St. Paul Lutheran Church (715 South Third Street).

All performances begin at 7 p.m., admission is free (although donations are encouraged), and more information is available by visiting Genesius.org.

Politicalamity

Augustana College

Friday, March 10, through Sunday, March 12

On the surface, absurdist comedy and politics would appear to be two completely unrelated subjects. But from March 10 to 12 ... .

Listen – we’re never gonna get through this if you keep laughing like that.

But from March 10 to 12, the absurd gets political and the political gets absurd in Politicalamity, an Augustana College studio offering produced wholly by students in the theatre department’s Play Production course. Designed to give participants experience in producing a show from the ground up, the project finds everything from the initial play selection to its creative design to its press releases the duties of director Keenan Odenkirk and his classmates Sarah Baker, Laura Bergren, Emma Brutman, Jessica Holzknecht, Audrey Johnsen, Samuel Langallier, Madison Mortensen, Maissie Musick, Jake Phillips, and Shannon Ryan.

This year’s Play Production effort is actually a trio of titles – author Murphy Guyer’s Loyalties, and David Campton’s A Smell of Burning and Then ... – that Odenkirk says meshed together beautifully given what he and his fellow students hoped to deliver.

“We definitely knew we wanted to do something a little political and relevant,” says Odenkirk, whose student cast boasts Isabelle Dawson, Thea Gonzalez, Jonathon Meir, Muriel Melgoza, Steven Mondloch, and Jaryd Whitmore. “We didn’t want to pick a side, however. That seems to be a tendency of theatre artists in general; they lean toward one particular side, and then they just create an echo chamber with the people who will be coming to their show. And that doesn’t necessarily do much.

“So we wanted to play with the ideas of ambivalence and empathy,” he continues. “That felt important to us as learning artists, and people who are trying to figure out their own artistic voices – trying to understand what we can contribute to performance and the theatre world.”

Politicalamity’s opening piece, Loyalties, begins with what Odenkirk describes as “a standard dinner argument between two guys who have opposing political views. Their wives are sisters, and the two guys are ... . Well, I guess for lack of a better word, they’re douchebags. One of them is just a really cocky, obnoxious, rude, liberal dude, and the other one is a loud, obnoxious, crazy, conservative dude. But both of their wives are very reasonable women, and end up getting torn apart because of that – this big shock at the end kind of rockets everything into an absurdist world where nothing makes sense anymore.”

That absurdist world would be the one of The Smell of Burning and Then ... . The first of Campton’s short works, says Odenkirk, “starts with this couple sitting at home. You can hear explosions in the distance, and you can see a red glow outside their window, so clearly there’s some kind of war or disaster occurring outside. But the couple isn’t acknowledging it, and to such a ridiculous point that they’re talking about toast and eggs and what they’re going to do that day while there’s all this fire outside. Eventually, this hilariously slimy representative from the government shows up, and starts talking about how he’s going to blow up their house, and goes up to kill their upstairs neighbor ... .”

As for Politicalamity’s finale Then ... , Odenkirk says, “It’s kind of set in the same world in that, clearly, some sort of horrible disaster has occurred. But here, everyone has been turned to dust except for two people – and they survived because they wore paper bags over their heads. So for the entire show, the actors wear paper bags.

“It’s all very nonchalant,” he continues. “And very dark. But it’s also very, very funny. And even though they’re plays by different playwrights, we think that through their styles and themes, we’re connecting them to create one cohesive storyline.”

With Odenkirk’s Augustana credits including roles in such dramatic works as The Passion of Dracula, Machinal, and last fall’s Othello, Politicalamity’s director says that, in rehearsals, he relishes “watching the cast just go in there and try to make each other laugh – and make each other laugh without losing the sense of what the plays are about. Ultimately, if they can have that kind of fun with the other people on-stage, when the audience shows up they’ll go along with them.”

Yet in addition to laughs, says Odenkirk, “What I’d love for people to get out of this is that there’s a right way to discuss politics – and discuss beliefs, period – just by maintaining empathy. You can have conflicts of beliefs without, you know, being a douchebag about it.”

Politicalamity runs in the Honkamp Black Box Theatre at Augustana’s Brunner Theatre Center (3750 Seventh Avenue, Rock Island); performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 1 p.m.; and more information and $3 to $5 tickets are available by calling (309)794-7306 or visiting Augustana.edu/arts.
