Faith and art intersect in Rick Segall's profoundly moving one-man show illuminating the final moments of Apostle Simon Peter's life, and how those moments changed the life of one man forever. Fishers of Men opens August 14 in a limited three-week engagement at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood.
The year is 64 A.D. A suspicious fire breaks out in the southern part of Rome, nearly destroying the city. Rumors begin to spread of Emperor Nero's culpability in causing the inferno after the Senate opposed his plans to build a new palatial complex. In an effort to deflect accusations, Nero pins the blame on a burgeoning religious sect of outliers, otherwise known as "Christians." Arrests follow speedily. Prisoners are tortured in the hopes of discovering the new religious sect's key leaders. On the eve of His Majesty's Anniversary Games, all the leaders are secretly detained, but only one is of utmost importance to Nero. His name is. . .Simon Peter.
Hudson Theatre is located at 6539 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90038. Fishers of Men runs for a three-week limited engagement from August 14 through August 30 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. General admission is $20.
