From the theater:
North Coast Repertory Theatre continues its wholly live Season 40 by shining a light on a little-known chapter of the Civil War. Written by Richard Strand, Ben Butler is part comedy, part history and completely captivating. General Benjamin Butler faces an impossible moral dilemma: follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of American history. It’s a battle of wit and word play as the characters spar with each other over respect, equality and civil rights

David Ellenstein directs Richard Baird,* Brian Mackey,* Brandon Pierce,* and Bruce Turk* on North Coast Rep’s mainstage. Audiences will see a full theatrical production with sets by Scenic Designer Marty Burnett, Light Design Matt Novotny, Costumes by Renetta Lloyd, and Prop Design Philip Korth. Aaron Rumley* is the Stage Manager. You won’t want to miss the Southern California premiere of the play The New York Times praised as “splendid,” and “it’s a hoot.”

Ben Butler previews begin Wednesday, October 20. Opening Night on Saturday, October 23, at 8 p.m. It will play on the following schedule through November 14:
• Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
• Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m.
• Friday, October 22, and Wednesday, November 3 at 2 p.m.
