Live theater returns to Middletown this week with the Oddfellows Playhouse Teen Repertory Company production of Coming To Save Us, an ensemble-generated play about environmental justice. Coming To Save Us will be performed at 5:30 pm on October 16 & 17 outdoors at the North Pavilion in Harborpark, on the bank of the Connecticut River in Middletown.

The play has been created by the cast members during a series of outdoor workshops with Playhouse Artistic Director Dic Wheeler and Program Manager Jacqueline Brown. Coming To Save Us is a collection of character monologues, movement pieces and stories exploring the physical and social impacts of climate change. The piece lasts about 30 minutes, and audience members are encouraged to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs. No chairs will be provided. Audience will be socially-distanced on the grass beside the river, and masks will be required of everyone.

Admission is free, but reservations are required and donations are encouraged. Seating is limited to comply with COVID-19 precautions. Audience members may arrive from the direction of the Canoe Club parking lot, or through the tunnel from the Municipal Parking Lot on DeKoven Drive. Upon arrival each group will be escorted to a designated seating area.

To reserve a place, or for more information, email info@oddfellows.org, call (860) 347-6143, or go to www.oddfellows.org.
