HOME ABOUT DONATE        

It's Halloween night. Jeff and Joan, a young married couple, wait for trick-or-treaters in their claustrophobic suburban home. As the night goes on, their unspoken desires and resentments bubble to the surface. Their life together transforms into a cheesy horror movie, filled with mysterious events, hungry ghosts, and verse-speaking monsters. Jeff and Joan are never sure what is actually happening, what is imaginary, and what is a nightmare vision of what could be. Equal parts sitcom and supernatural thriller, Seventy Scenes of Halloween explores contemporary married life through both humor and horror. There is nothing else even remotely like Jeffrey M. Jones' inventive, hilarious and challenging play.

  Play about failing marriage shows our monstrous side

by Toby Zinman; Philadelphia Inquirer (10/12/12)

"Seventy scenes. Three hundred lighting cues. Ninety minutes. Four terrific actors. An offstage voice murmurs: “Scene One: Go”  and Jeffrey M. Jones’ Seventy Scenes of Halloween begins. It will continue with seemingly randomly numbered scenes (“fifty-four: go,” thirty-six: go”) to scare and amuse us. Director Aaron Oster has arranged this fragmented plot so cleverly that while we’re busy trying to piece the story together, we discover it doesn’t matter nearly as much as it usually does. There are many tricks and many treats in this nifty production by Luna Theater." (full review)

 
   
   
   
   
   
   
                                               
 

The Antic Ghost of a Troubled Marriage in Luna’s SEVENTY SCENES OF HALLOWEEN

by Debra Miller; Stage Magazine (10/14/12)

"In keeping with the spirit of October, Luna Theater Company kicks off its 2012-13 season with Jeffrey M. Jones’ strangely autobiographical supernatural amusement, SEVENTY SCENES OF HALLOWEEN. Composed of dozens of short, out-of-sequence episodes that take place in the suburban living room, and in the minds, of playwright Jeff and his wife Joan on All Hallows Eve, the imaginative dark comedy about the horrors of a failing relationship is scarier, and funnier, than any trick-or-treater’s costume!
