70 Scenes of Halloween
by Jeffrey Jones
Theatre Honors Program

A real yet strange play that seems to tell itself through many different stories like a many-sided coin that keeps changing its face. It is a fairy tale of itself, flipping back and forth between an outer focus and an inner focus of the realities of the world of the play and of the world of the actor. The words scratch and claw to a surface sometimes finding gentleness. And the demon in me is the demon in me.
