TUESDAY PICK | AEthem Theatre Company realizes their “Before. After. Never.”


Before. After. Never.‘s Kickstarter video is a little, uh, offbeat. But it worked nevertheless, because AEthem Theatre Company now has itself a fully produced play showing at the Sabes Jewish Community Center on May 21 and 22. The premise of the show takes J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan one step further by looking at what happened after Neverland and describes itself as darker than Disney’s version. The Twin Cities ensemble specializes in “physical theatre” and is made up on a group of Bethel University students wanting to develop “non-traditional skills.” It seems the little company is succeeding in all of that so far.
