The Fab Marquee News Desk.

THE AMORALISTS are pleased to announce the world premiere production of AMERISSIAH, written and directed by Derek Ahonen.

Performances begin Thursday, November 13 and continue through Sunday, December 7. Opening Night is Monday, November 17 (8 p.m.). Press are invited November 15, 16, 17.

Barry Ricewater, a terminally ill man convinced he is God, returns to the apartment of his childhood. His degenerate family descends on him to pay their last respects. They all think he is crazy until the gathering is interrupted by an unlikely disciple. Only through Barry’s divine intervention can the crooked Ricewater clan be saved.

Prepare yourself for Amerissiah, a new comedy about America and the thin line between faith and insanity, ambition and corruption.

With William Apps IV, Selene Beretta, Nancy Clarkson, Ree Davis, Jennifer Fouche, Adam Fujita, James Kautz, Matthew Pilieci and George Walsh.
