On the fence about going? Well this brief review in The Post and Courier may just nudge you over the edge.

First reporting: 

Pure Theatre is proud to present the South Carolina premiere of the psychological thriller 'Yankee Tavern' by Steven Dietz.

I won't let the suspense eat you alive, so here's a quick bit on the play that is for mature audiences only:

Inside the walls of a crumbling New York tavern, a young couple find themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz's acclaimed dramatic thriller is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word. From the playwright of More Fun Than Bowling, Ten November, The Last of the Boys, Honus and Me, and Sherlock Holmes, comes a new play filled with mystery, conspiracy and thrills. In an instant, outlandish hypothesis become dangerous realities as surprising revelations continue to emerge in this eye-opening look at our government and the theories behind the events that have shaped our country.

The opening performance is on Friday, January 22nd at Upper Lance Hall on the grounds of Circular Congregational Church at 150 Meeting Street. Tickets range from $20 - $25 and can be purchased online.

The play is directed by Sharon Graci and features Will Hodges, Katie Huard, Randy Neale, and Mark Poremba.
