PENDA'S FEN AT THE CLINTON STREET THEATER

Wednesday, October 16th at the Clinton Street Theater! 8pm, $5-8 suggested donation, notaflof. Young Stephen, the son of a country Priest, doesn't quite fit in. Bullied at school, very awkward, obsessed with the music of Elgar, deeply conservative in his views of God and Country, and also deeply confused about his own sexual desires... None of which is helped by that fact that he lives in Pinvin, a small village that may be the resting grounds of England's last pagan king, Penda, or the grounds of some bizarre modern day military experiments. Bleding striking visions and dream sequences into a folk horror melange of ghosts, politics and sexuality, Alan Clarke's PENDA'S FEN was immediately hailed in the UK as a complex modern masterpiece.
