Bobby Pence Triology Begins To End Tonight (With Nudity)
The finale of Kenley Smith's Bobby Pence triology begins tonight at Studio Roanoke with "The New Testament" (the poster calls it "The Brand New Testament") and if you've seen the first two, this is a can't miss. And it has nekkid people in it. Briefly, it warns. Lots of cussing, too. And, my guess is, lots of Kenley Smith's memorable, fall down funny writing.
In the final episode, Bobby has become a "charismatic healer, lay preacher and budding Internet phenomenon" and all that raises questions in the mind of a young researcher looking for the truth. Kenley's understanding of Southerners and their love-hate relationship with religion has been spot-on in the two previous installments of the triology.
"The New Testament"follows predecessors "Devil Sedan" and "Twelve Stations of the Cross." Buy tickets online here for $15 or call 540-343-3054 and buy them for $20. Seniors and military personnel pay $12.
The play runs Feb. 9-20 at 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturdays with 2 p.m. matinees Saturday and Sunday.
