KNOW Theatre will open its 2023-2024 season with a provocative play that will force audience members to confront their preconceived notions about good and evil.
Coyote on a Fence by Bruce Graham was first produced at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. Set in a prison in the American South, it explores the concept of the death penalty and the meaning of evil. The KNOW production, directed by Tim Gleason, will open Sept. 15 for a three-weekend run at KNOW’s theater, 74 Carroll St., in downtown Binghamton.
Illiterate but likable, Bobby Reyburn (Joe Hoffman) is a member of the Aryan nation, a racist predator convicted of a horrific crime. John Brennan (Adam Holley) is educated and arrogant, a serious writer who may only be guilty of doing society a favor. Can one be innocent though proven guilty? This penetrating drama offers no clear verdict.
Also starring in the production are Qiana Watson and Mitch Tiffany.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays Sept. 15-Oct. 1. Tickets at$25 ($20 for seniors, $15 for students) can be purchased at knowtheatre.org. A pay-what-you-can-night will be offered at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21; the playwright will be on Zoom after that show.
