There is a Happiness That Morning Is

Rated 5.0

This odd yet compelling 90-minute play is set in a classroom complete with blackboard and lectern, with the audience becoming the students and being addressed by two professors of William Blake's poetry. The dialogue is performed Blake-style in romantic and passionate rhyming couplets. But in the masterful hands of KOLT's steady direction under Patrick Murphy and with impressive, flawless performances by the three-member cast, this clever, daring play presented in poetic prose is a pure theatrical treat. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 5/31. $15-$20. The Wilkerson Theater in the California Stage complex, 2509 R St.; (916) 454
