The Play: Set in the 1930’s, Epic Proportions tells the story of brothers Benny and Phil, who go to the Arizona desert to work as extras in the Biblical epic film Exeunt Omnes directed by the mysteriously reclusive D. W. DeWitt. All 3,400 extras are supervised by Louise Goldman, who divides them into groups by asking them to count off by four. While Phil’s experience as a “3” includes relatively pleasant scenes of feasts and parades, brother Benny is a “4”, meaning he is included in all ten plagues.
As thing progress, and everything begins to fall apart, Phil finds himself behind the camera as the film’s director, with Benny in a starting role. The two fall in love with Louise, leading to a brother vs. brother rivalry typical of epic movies.

Epic Proportions will be the opening show of the Lubbock Community Theatre 2019-2020 season.
