 "in the masterful hands of KOLT’s steady direction under Patrick Murphy and with impressive, flawless performances by the three-member cast, this clever, daring play presented in poetic prose is a pure theatrical treat."

The Davis Enterprise:

"A hilarious gem! .... Do yourself a big favor and buy a ticket. You will not be sorry."


ONE FINAL WEEKEND -- Ends Sunday, May 31!

Thur/Fri/Sat at 8pm; Sun at 2pm

The Wilkerson Theater (25th & R Streets)

Starring Greg Hanson, Greg Parker and KOLT Executive Director Kelley Ogden

Written in rhymed verse, playwright Mickle Maher’s There Is a Happiness That Morning Is is told via two lectures on the poetry of William Blake: one given in the morning by Bernard, a middle-aged, barely published poet of scant scholarship, on the “Songs of Innocence”; and the other in the afternoon by his lover, Ellen, a reputable Ph.D., on the “Songs of Experience.” Having engaged the evening before in a controversial display of public affection on the main lawn of their rural New England campus, the two undergraduate lecturers must now, in class, either apologize for their behavior or effectively justify it if they want to keep their jobs. 

Check out the Sac Bee article on "Happiness" director, Patrick Murphy!
