Schuster Theatre presents Ape and Essence
Adapted from Aldous Huxley by Shawn Clerkin and directed by
Alaina Manchester, this new version of the 1948 dystopian novel examines the
post-atomic warfare world, employing surreal imagery of a satirized human
society incapable of holding on to decency and mutuality. The themes of
hopelessness and self-annihilation pervade this modern morality tale.
This production will be the Gannon theatre program’s entry
into the 2017 International Collegiate Theatre Festival and Edinburgh Festival
