Shepsu Aahku

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through May 28 2017
Price: $28-$32
Shepsu Aakhu casts a sympathetic, compassionate gaze on one of society's biggest collective punch lines: doomsday preachers. When the sun rises on the day after what was supposed to be the end of the world and the eye-rolling public moves on, it's easy to forget that fellow human beings, however misguided, have just had their understanding of the universe obliterated. Carla Stillwell's MPAACT production makes the gravity of that situation feel true in an isolated, claustrophobic Mississippi home. Unable to face his congregation or provide comfort to an ailing parishioner, a deeply shamed pastor (Darren Jones) cedes responsibilities to his wife (Renee Lockett). Lockett's performance resonates with pain and pity, then explodes with the sort of grief known only to those hurt by the ones they love the most. —Dan Jakes
