Under the Lights
What's Happening on Stage in Atlanta in November
Thru November 18
Beneath the otherworldly glow of the Northern Lights, tourists and locals mingle in the shadows of Iceland's capital city. Reykjav√≠k is told through eight interconnected vignettes. We eavesdrop on lovers, siblings, hotel employees, sex workers ‚Äď and even some birds with really strong opinions about honesty. In this tour-de-force collision of sex and danger, playwright Steve Yockey propels us on a thrilling journey through a world in which the supernatural is closer than we think.
NOT ABOUT HEROES
November 2 - 18
Aris Theatre at 7 Stages Theatre
August 1917. Wilfred Owen, a 24-year-old shell-shocked British soldier, meets the famous poet, soldier, and war protestor Siegfried Sassoon at Craiglockhart War Hospital in Scotland. Their mutual love of poetry and disillusionment with the war draws them together, sparking a powerful friendship. Sassoon nurtures Owen’s budding talent, and between them, they convey the horror of their experiences in the death-filled trenches of France and Germany in a way that forever alters the public’s opinion of World War I. Their story is a testament to the enduring power of love and poetry.
WAFFLE PALACE CHRISTMAS
November 16 - December 30
Horizon Theatre Company is ringing in the holiday season with a new tradition! Waffle Palace Christmas, is a sequel to the smash-hit show inspired by real events at Waffle House restaurants. "After staging several sell-out runs of Waffle Palace in past years, we're excited to bring back the beloved all-night diner and its staff in a new edition perfect for the holiday season," said Co-Artistic/Producing Director Lisa Adler. Waffle Palace Christmas picks up with the vintage Waffle Palace now thriving in the middle of a new modern city multi-use complex. The holiday season is in full swing and the staff is adjusting to new roles, an inexperienced employee and quirky regulars. With Christmas cheer aplenty among the diverse staff and diners, Krampus, a legendary, shape-shifting holiday villain, appears over the restaurant to sabotage the spirit and challenge all in his path.
