The Seven Deadly Plays

A Play Series by Stephen Riordan

Join the Studio@620 as they explore the humanity, or lack thereof, in all of us with the world premieres of PSALM OF BERNADETTE OR SLOTH and BEDBUGS OR WRATH, the second installment of the Stephen Riordan’s seven part play series, SEVEN DEADLY PLAYS.

It's been seven months since our inaugural installment featuring Greed and Envy, and the Studio @ 620 is proud to continue it's journey of exploration through the themes, stories, and myths of the World Premiere Event, The Seven Deadly Plays. Please join us for the presentation of our next two sinful stories, Sloth and Wrath. Six Performances Only!  

PSALM OF BERNADETTE OR SLOTH explores how dogmatic religious beliefs interfere with Matthew, an overworked junior partner at a start-up law firm, whose most recent case has him questioning the power of his convictions and the strength of his character. Awaiting a mysterious visitor in his small apartment, Matthew faces his faith, his future and his resolve as he and his slacker roommate try and come to terms with the consequences of letting go of what they thought they wanted. Directed by Robert Irwin Davidson and stars Gerald Ramsberger, Jeffrey Klein and Dana Kovar.

In BEDBUGS OR WRATH, Walter, who is a broken man dealing with the death of his family, brings home a hustler named Paul Revere. Paul, who is also a damaged soul, pegs Walter as an easy mark. Things turn more dangerous as the night gets darker and Walter's anger continues to grow. Directed by Stephen Riordan and stars Norman Naudain, Caroline Jett, Andrew Deeb and Chase Adin.
