Rapid Lemon Productions
August 9 – 18
The third show of Rapid Lemon Productions’ 2019 “Season of Belief” is a collaboration with the Baltimore Playwrights Festival: CRUSADE, a world premiere by local playwright Bruce Bonafede, directed by Timoth David Copney.
It is the future. The takeover of the federal government by Christian fundamentalists, and their assault on the Constitution, has led to civil war. On reconnaissance patrol in the Rocky Mountains, an Army squad is forced to take cover in an isolated cabin owned by a former professor who now wants only to be left alone. A chain of events tests their character and is resolved in a moment of violence that seals their fate.
Crusade is a fictional story, but one whose themes are increasingly real to us today. It’s a violent story. Its characters deal with mental and physical torture, rape, mass murder, and the other horrible things that happen in war. This production contains all of these; and specifically, employs very realistic-looking but nonfunctional prop weapons and a variety of lighting and sound effects which may be disturbing to some in our audience.
**There will be talk-back with playwright Bruce Bonafede and director Timoth David Copney immediately following the performance on August 11th .**
