WEEKEND: Performance group to offer film, play tonight on Port Angeles stage

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Insurgent Theatre, a touring performance troupe from Milwaukee, will arrive in Port Angeles tonight to screen a documentary film, “The Shadow of Lucasville,” and to perform a live play titled “Behind the Badge” all on the Alle Stage at Studio Bob, 118 E. Front St.

“The Shadow of Lucasville,” to start at 7 p.m., revisits the 1993 uprising at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility, one of the longest prison protests in U.S. history. The film, according to a news release, uses the event to explore the inmates’ fight for human rights amid the prison industrial complex.

At 9 p.m., following “Lucasville,” Insurgent Theatre performers will present “Behind the Badge,” a look at the inner life of a police officer. Kate Pleuss directs and Ben Turk appears in the 90-minute interactive play, and audience members will be invited to stay for a discussion afterward.

Admission tonight is by suggested donation of $5 to $15, while no one will be turned away for lack of funds, noted Sarah Tucker, manager of the Alle Stage. A portion of Insurgent Theatre’s proceeds will go to prisoner support projects.

Insurgent Theatre is coming to the Olympic Peninsula at the suggestion of John Manno, a local theater artist and musician who participated in Milwaukee’s fringe theater scene before he moved to Port Angeles.
