2018 – “Noonday Demons” by Peter Barnes

Posted on: May 14, 2018

Everyday at noon, in a cave somewhere in the deserts of Egypt, a demon possesses St. Eusibius and tempts him with wealth, lust and power and everytime Eusibius resists and breaks free. One day, however, another hermit, St. Pior, barges in and claims the Lord has promised him this cave. After mistaking each other for a noonday demon, the two hermits settle on an absurd contest to determine who gets to stay. This squabble quickly turns into a real fight with fatal results but who will win and what exactly is the prize?

This play was also performed at the FEATS Festival in Antwerpen in 2018.
