Staging "Blaze, Blood, and Danger": The Red Badge of Courage

As co-directors and co-creators, Michael Haverty and Jane Barnette will stage an original adaptation of Stephen Crane's groundbreaking novel, The Red Badge of Courage in spring 2014. Slated for production at both KSU's Onyx Theater and Atlanta's 7 Stages, this performance will combine puppets, object theatre, live actors, and an original score in order to take audiences to the heart of the Civil War. Spectators will experience an intimate visual and sonic journey through the battle-scarred fields and forests, seen through the eyes of a nai've young soldier who initially shirks but ultimately embraces the violence and rush of war.
