Mabee Foundation Theatre (Black Box)

What happens when tragedy confronts an idyllic community, and media speculation hounds the investigation with unfounded innuendo? Culver-Stockton College?s Department of Theatre presents Steve Yockey?s Bellwether as it follows the descent of a friendly neighborhood that turns on parents Alan and Jackie Draft when their six-year-old daughter Amy disappears mysteriously. Adapting ancient Greek drama?s concept of chorus as responders to tragedy, Yockey lifts the veneer of friendly perfection from the townsfolk of Bellwether to expose an unsettling darkness roiling beneath.
