Halloween thriller at LampLight Theatre

Community contributor • Updated Oct 2, 2015 at 11:51 AM

KINGSPORT — LampLight Theatre’s Mortality Room unveils its new Halloween-season production this month.

“Hour of Darkness” will be presented Oct. 9-11, 16-18, 23-25 and 28-31.

Performances will be nightly at 6:30 p.m., with additional performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 9 p.m.

Tickets are a suggested donation of $8.

In “Hour of Darkness,” The New World Regime and its soldiers are now the governing body of post-apocalyptic America. The president has declared martial law and the Christian Church has been forced underground, as those opposed to this new government are taken away to internment camps to be “re-educated” — but more often, slaughtered.

Pastor Mark Stevens courageously leads a congregation of the Underground Church during a terrifying era where death is almost as certain as his faith. Hunted down by the new administration known as the New World Regime (NWR) for harboring and aiding Rev. John Gains, the Father of the Underground Church, this local body of believers is divided between those who want to stand and fight the NWR with a group of rebels known as the “subversives” and those who believe this battle is not just against flesh and blood.

A blood-stained trail follows the NWR Commander and his ruthless soldiers, known for their fierce brutality and unrelenting pursuit of those opposed to the nation’s newly found “policies.” They will stop at nothing to flush out “dissidents” of their administration.

This spine-chilling tale of modern day martyrdom will unveil the masks of the ordinary to expose the evils of Satan and his minions in an “Hour of Darkness” audiences will not soon forget.

“Hour of Darkness” will take your mind into the realm of the unseen, as you are introduced to a legion of masked nefarious demons. These “fallen ones” summon Lucifer, who masquerades as “The Angel of Light” to destroy the lives of the most innocent. 

When this legion of principalities and dark forces gets done with the members of the Underground Church, their mortal souls will hang in the balance of the “after life” of eternity.

What will happen to Pastor Mark’s family and his divided congregation? What will become of the world under this new regime?

Mortality Room’s “Hour of Darkness” is not for everyone. Due to its true-to-life situations and scary images, the show is rated PG-13.
