passion-1In honor of National Library Week (April 7-13, 2019), I present Passion in the Library: An Apocalyptic Comedy in Flames and Shadows. The play “is a multimedia drama revealing a new emotional perspective on the human confrontation with human knowledge …” The script is located in the George Prescott Scott papers in the Archives and Special Collections. Scott wrote the play, and constructed a complex projection device he called the Crystalline Flame Dragon. Janet Pfishchner McNeil wrote the musical score. A performance of the play was taped and shown on SDPTV (now SDPB) Thursday December 6, 1973 at 9:30 pm.

I so want to see this play. They had me at dragon. If anyone know where I can find a tape, let me know.
