Beacon From Belle Isle.

This November at Nimbus Theatre, we present the world premiere of The Beacon From Belle Isleby Freshwater company member-at-large J. Merrill Motz, directed by Jamil Jude.

The Beacon From Belle Isle illustrates a unique time in Michigan’s history, as the great city of Detroit files for bankruptcy and its most precious memories and iconic landmarks (including, perhaps, Belle Isle) are in danger of being stripped away and sold to the highest bidder.

Flavored with magical realism and framed in vignettes that range from unflinching candor to whimsical history, The Beacon From Belle Isle‘s search for a metaphorical lighthouse drives an exploration of Michigan’s growth, decline, and search for a new collective direction.
