“Behemoth,” a play written by A.G. Alexander, will be presented Friday and Saturday, Aug. 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 22 at 1 p.m. at Waterman’s Community Center, Main Street.

“Behemoth” tells the story of a turbulent time when bombs are falling, trains are late and something strange is happening on a remote island. The world seems to be falling apart at the seams for a group of would-be train passengers who await a train, which may never come, while explosions overspread the landscape.

In curious contrast, a mix of characters enjoys what seems to be a typical, sunny vacation -relaxing on the beach, meeting up with old friends, drinking cocktails and having affairs. What emerges from these two distinctive storylines is a broad picture of the play’s world as a whole, a glimpse at the Behemoth.

The all-star island cast includes Jacob Greenlaw, Stan Brown, Courtney Naliboff, Kenny Corson, Adam Murphy, Rachael Garbowski, David Wilson, Cora Comstock, Andy Gelinas, Lana Smithner, Ben Hardy and Colin Dweir.

Seats are sure to go fast for this summer show, so those who plan to attend should call 867-2100 to make their reservations.
