9/18: Finn in the Underworld at Liminis Theatre

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Convergence-continuum artistic director Clyde Simon takes a turn onstage as a creepy neighbor in Jordan Harrison’s Finn in the Underworld, which tells the story of the 20-year-old title character, who returns to his childhood home with his mom and aunt after his dad dies. The ladies just want to pack up and get out, but Finn is curious and starts asking questions, especially about the fallout shelter in the basement. It turns out a neighbor’s young brother was found in the shelter years ago. Simon plays the neighbor. “It’s creepy,” he says. “The underworld is the fallout shelter, and there’s a bit of the ‘through the looking glass’ effect as he goes down there. It’s not fun like that, but it’s definitely curiouser and curiouser. It’s a psycho-sexual drama, like if Hitchcock made adult movies.” The story unfolds in flashbacks and flash-forwards, eventually piecing together like a puzzle. It stars Scott Gorbach as Finn, Lucy Breedson-Smith as mom Gwen and Lauri Hammer as Aunt Rhoda. Geoff Hoffman directs. It opens at 8 tonight at the Liminis Theatre (2438 Scranton Rd., 216.687.0074). Tickets: $12-$15. — Michael Gill
