What would you do if you found yourself stuck in 1954? After inadvertently being sent back in time by their deceased father, two brothers are about to learn a valuable lesson about family, honesty and greed. Johnny steals music that hasn’t been written yet, taking the credit for huge hits and leaving the real artists with uncertain futures. Everything’s going well but there’s a problem: a promise made to his brother that he wouldn’t touch The Beatles. Their future is unaffected; they’re going push him out of the spotlight for sure. So… he plots to kill them. The Beatles Die on Tuesday is a dark comedy that will leave you wondering… what if?
Playwright Clinton K. Clark recently wrote and produced a play for the Deschutes County Centennial Celebration, and just wrapped up a travelling Shakespeare production of Hamlet. He has appeared in many productions around Bend, including Avenue Q.
