SUNY Plattsburgh Theatre Department Presents "Incorruptible"

PLATTSBURGH, NY __ The Theatre Department at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh presents the play, "Incorruptible," Wednesday - Saturday, Nov. 10 - 13 in the Hartman Theatre, Myers Fine Arts Building at 8 p.m.

"Incorruptible," by Michael Hollinger, is a dark comedy about the dark ages. The monks of St. Foy have problems - they have no money to help the poor, they haven't produced any miracles in 13 years and a second-rate convent in Bernay claims to have the bones of their patron saint.

The one event that could turn it around for them is a visit from the Pope. But how do you get the Pope to visit? The answer: By producing a miracle. The brothers set out to make money to draw the attention of the Pope.

The business they choose is less than holy - they sell the bones of supposed saints through the mail. Then they promise the Pope an Incorruptible, a saint whose body never decays, if he visits the monestary.

Tickets are $2 for SUNY Plattsburgh students; $7 for faculty, staff, seniors and non-SUNY Plattsburgh students; and $10 for general admission. They can be purchased in advance at the Angell College Center Information Desk or at the box office on the nights of the show.

For more information, contact the Theatre Department at 518-564-2180.
