A man has literally no idea what is going on after he is arrested in the Alley Theater-presented The Trial, which takes place this weekend only.
The Trial will take place on Aug. 21 at 7 p.m., Aug. 22 at 7 and 9:30 p.m., and Aug. 23 at 4, 7, and 9:30 p.m. All performances are to happen at the Alley Theater, located at 633 West Main Street in downtown Louisville.
Tickets for each show are $15 for adults and $12 for students. Purchases in advance are highly recommended as some shows are nearly sold out. All tickets can be purchased at the Alley Theater website.
For those who have Alley Theater's SixTix cards, those cards can be used for this show.
The Trial focuses on a man who has been put under arrest and is now facing a trial. The only problem is he is not sure what the crime was, who's authority has taken him into custody, what the punishment could be, or even when the trial is to go on. No one seems like they truly care about telling him anything. Is there any way out of this situation?
Franz Kafka created the novel The Trial of which the play is based. Martin French directed the play for Alley Theater.
Following The Trial, Alley Theater will present Detective Partner Hero Villain. That production will go on Aug. 28 - Sept. 6. After that, Alley Theater will bring back its successful parody Star Trek: Boldly Going Way Too Far from Sept. 12-20. More information on all of these shows can be found at the Alley Theater website.
