WEEKEND THEATER: The Metal Children

WEEKEND THEATER: The Metal Children: In small-town America, a young adult novel about teen pregnancy is banned by the local school board, igniting a fierce and violent debate over abortion, religious beliefs, and modern feminism. Its directionless New York City author arrives in town to defend the book and finds that it has inspired a group of local teens to rebel in strange and unexpected ways. Consider the ruckus stirred by the young adult book: a testy night at the school board meeting is just the appetizer. The book also inspires a swarm of teenage pregnancies, a horde of pig-masked vigilantes terrorizing the populace, a suicide, and at least one murder attempt. A timely and unforgettable drama about the failure of urban and heartland America to understand each other, The Metal Children explores what happens when fiction becomes a matter of life and death. The show will open with a performance at 7:30 Friday as well as 7:30 Saturday. Performances will continue Jan. 25-26. The theater is located at the corner of 7th and Chester Streets in Little Rock.
