‘Come Hell and High Water’ opens Thursday

By
February 28, 2011 |

“Come Hell and High Water,” devised and directed by Granada Artist-in-Residence Dominque Serrand and co-written by Steven Epp, opens Thursday at UC Davis.

This epic American play, presented by the UCD department of theater and dance, explores the forces of a flood using the structure of an oratorio built from song, dance, story and character. “Come Hell and High Water” continues through Sunday, March 13, in the Main Theatre in Wright Hall at UCD.

Serrand had wanted to write an epic about the current United States for some time. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, he found his vehicle. Although “Come Hell and High Water” is set in the 1920s, the humanity, suffering and American vulnerability revealed in Katrina form the core of this new work.

The lead actor, as an old man, is played by Brian Livingston, a master of fine arts candidate; the young man is portrayed by Matthew Dunivan, a fourth-year dramatic arts major.

This production contains partial nudity and some profanity. Showtimes are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and March 11-12, and 2 p.m. Sunday and March 13. Tickets are $17 and $15 general, and $13 and $11 for students, seniors and children, available by calling (530) 754-2787 or online at http://mondaviarts.org.
