These nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery. They’re quixotic. They have swagger. They are nights devoted to the ragged mysteries of being human, and so grief and endings of all kinds appear.  What would you call such a thing? We call them Nights of Grief & Mystery.

Part poetry, part lamentation, part book reading, part ribaldry, part concert, part lifting the mortal veil and learning the mysteries there…that’s what’s in store. And something about the plague, and the last twenty months. And that dark road/rough God thing? That image is more than an image. That is what we do. That is our devotional act.  Watch trailer
