Pacific University Theater Department play "Heathen Valley

Heathen Valley, by Romulus Linney, sets us deep in the heart of Appalachia circa 1840. The people are poor, carnal, uneducated, sometimes violent. An Episcopalian bishop sends in a green but well-meaning pastor to teach and inspire them, and all is well until the bishops's growing religious zeal threatens to tip the balance in this dark and poetic morality play.

Directed by senior Theatre major Windy Stein, Heathen Valley will run in the Tom Miles Theatre on the following schedule:

Friday, October 21, 7:30 PM
Saturday, October 22, 7:30 PM
Sunday, October 23 (matinee), 2:00 PM
Friday, October 28, 7:30 PM
Saturday, October 29, 7:30 PM

Tickets are $7 general admission, $5 for students. We are always happy to arrange classroom visits (director, designers, and/or cast) or other supplemental contact that might be of use to FYS. I can have copies of the script sent to faculty anytime as well. I'm not sure that his fits on the FYE page, the page is a general description of what FYE is not specific events
