The Seven Deadly Pleasures - A story of human character – or the search for it...
Goat Hall Productions and Allison Lovejoy are pleased to present this profoundly sinful and transcendent exploration of what it means to be human, as we celebrate our Residency at The Costume Shop: A.C.T.’s hottest new performance space, in San Francisco’s lively Central Market Arts Neighborhood.
GHP is very excited to join forces with Allison Lovejoy and her formidable talents as a classical, jazz, blues, and cabaret composer/writer/pianist/singer, to create the premiere performances of The Seven Deadly Pleasures, a 90-minute show with nine outrageous characters, daring humor, shocking plot turns, and memorable songs, from beautiful ballads to body-shaking rock.
The Seven Deadly Pleasures is a soul-searching and entertaining exposé of the archetypal Seven Deadly Sins: wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. Dressed up in contemporary clothing, and aided by the charismatic Devil, the Sins are exploited for their considerable Pleasures by the Dante family: Frank, wealthy and unscrupulous; his hungry brother Bruno; the angry son David; his lusty wife Sofia; and the beautiful, proud young girl Angela who’s desperate for love. Each of the characters personifies not only their individual “deadly sin,” but also the opposing “virtue.” Struggling to hold on to the American Dream, the Dantes fight to hide a dark secret that could destroy them, while a trio of singing angels propels the play to its inevitable cathartic end. Hit songs and scandalous scenes make this an unforgettable show.
