‘Dark Meets Light’ sheds light on eternity

By From page B6 | April 26, 2013

“Dark Meets Light” is now playing at Ovations Stage at Three Penny Theater, 1723 25th St. at the R25 Arts Complex in Sacramento. The play is about two women and two men who are locked up together for eternity in one bleak room in hell. There are no windows, no mirrors, the lights can never be turned off and there is no exit.

The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the other damned characters. Here the soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment.

The play is recommended for mature audiences.

The play stars Katie Pratt as Dalton, Millie Warren as Maxim, Laura Olson as Mary Quinn, Brent Dirksen as James Schwartz, Jawara Duncan as Gabrielle Monier and Alyssa Garcia as Sandra Adams.

“Dark Meets Light”  is the written and directed by Penny Kline. “Dark Meets Light” is based on the concept of the play “No Exit” 
by Jean-Paul Sartre.

The play runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Sunday, April 28. Friday and Saturday shows will be at 8 p.m. and Sunday shows at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors.
