The Sound And The Fury

Off Broadway Play - Drama — 

For its off-Broadway debut, Elevator Repair Service tackles one of American literature's most daunting challenges: the first chapter of William Faulkner's The Sound and The Fury. That chapter, April Seventh, 1928, is told from the point of view of Benjy Compson. Mute and mentally handicapped, Benjy cannot distinguish between past and present. He free-associates his way through his family's troubled past and longs for his lost sister.

With the same radical commitment Elevator Repair Service showed in its groundbreaking staging of Gatz, Elevator Repair Service embraces Faulkner's language and his multilayered narrative. An eerily timeless family living room is the setting for the company's romp through this dark story. With humor, pathos and a shot of high-energy choreography, the ensemble brings this infamous literary masterpiece to life on stage.
