Written by Marcia Cebulska, in response to the hate ministry of the Westboro Baptist Church, Visions of Right has not only timely social and political implications relating to themes of homosexuality and anti-Semitism, but also has a local interest. Marcia Cebulska lived and wrote in Bloomington for about 25 years and will be working closely with this production.
After her time in Bloomington, Marcia moved to Topeka, Kansas where she became painfully aware of the hate-mongering Westboro Baptist Church. She decided to go undercover, attending church services, and moving closer to the creation of her play, Visions of Right. The play details the life of a photographer, played by current IU graduate student and equity actor Abby Lee, as she returns to her childhood home of Topeka, finding herself—and her art—the subject of protest by the Zion Primitive Baptist Church, a fictionalized version of the Westboro congregation. This performance also features equity actor and IU graduate student, Chris Handley; IU undergraduate theatre student, Adam Decker; and well-known Bloomington actor, Gerard Pauwels.
