The Oath by Jacqueline Goldfinger
Location: GRCC Spectrum Theater Mezzanine, 160 Fountain Street
A Southern Gothic tale set during the Great Depression in which a wandering preacher is embroiled in the passions and politics of a swampy Florida outpost ruled with a macabre sense of justice by two rival sisters. It’s a darkly comic look at balancing ambition and ideals in a time of crisis.
Jacqueline (Jackie) Pardue Goldfinger is a dramaturg and award-winning playwright/screenwriter from Tallahassee, Florida (M.F.A. Screen and Television Writing, University of Southern California). She is the Literary Manager/PTC@PLAY Festival Director at Philadelphia Theatre Company (PTC) and a Senior Lecturer at University of the Arts (UArts). She’s also a Regional Vice President of the Literary Managers and Dramaturges of the Americas (LMDA).
Jacqueline has this to say about her work: “My work is inspired by the Southern Gothic style as portrayed in classic fiction – a style that heightens reality, gives epic importance to everyday situations, and embraces the macabre as a necessary, and instructive, part of life – yet transforms this literary style into an active and dramatic narrative for the stage.” [website]
