Convergence-Continuum's latest production, A Murder of Crows
, is billed as a "psycho-apocalyptic comedy." In Mac Wellman's play, the action takes place on the porch of a home in the Midwest, where a young girl has moved in with her aunt and uncle after the death of her father. Predicting an imminent weather catastrophe, she tries to convince the other porch-dwellers of the seriousness of their situation. Meanwhile, they discuss such heady topics as war, racism, and religion, while a flock of crows watches from above.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Aug. 25. Continues through Sept. 23
