Victorian comedy thriller ‘Twilight of the Gods’ comes to Franklin for two-week run

“Twilight of the Gods,” an original comedic thriller by Blackbird Theater founders Wes Driver and Greg Greene, is coming to Academy Park Performing Arts Center October 4-7, and October 11-14.

Williamson County Parks and Recreation is partnering with Blackbird Theater in presenting “Twilight,” which has earned critical
acclaim, including recognition as Best New Play of 2010 by the Nashville Scene. The show has enjoyed subsequent productions in New York City, Memphis, and Jefferson City, and is back in Middle Tennessee by popular demand.

In a secretive Victorian manor, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Annie Oakley, and Arthur Conan Doyle are among the nineteenth century luminaries locked in a battle of wits and ideologies with a killer in their midst, as their dream for a modern utopia turns into a Gothic nightmare. Audiences will experience laughter, thrill, and excitement.

“We are excited to have Blackbird Theater to perform “Twilight of the Gods,” one of the first adult theatre productions in the space,” says Laurie Kamunen, WCPR Program Superintendent. “Blackbird shows feature smart scripts, brought to life by some of the region’s most gifted artists and actors.”
