Tucson: Beowulf Alley's Late Night Theatre presents I COUNT TIME BY HOW A BODY SWAYS

Beowulf Alley’s Late Night Theatre


A Tale of Seduction and Confession

Late Night Theatre at Beowulf Alley, 11 South 6th Avenue, Downtown between Broadway and Congress, presents John Coyle’s controversial World War II-era play, I Count Time by How a Body Sways. Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays, October 2nd, 3rd, 9th and 10th at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 cash at the door. For additional information, please call (520) 977-5218.

I Count Time How a Body Sways tells the story of an American soldier who guards a female French collaborator at night. Their conversations are part seduction, part confession as the war comes to an end and they face their own culpability. This play has mature themes, language and situations. I Count Time by How a Body Sways is directed by Josh Parra and features Mike Miller and Kelsey Reinhard.

Beowulf Alley Theatre Company, a 501 (c)(3) organization, is committed to enriching the community and enhancing appreciation of the arts through the production of innovative, invigorating theatre and theatrical education with the highest standards for acting and production.  Equal and fair treatment will be provided to all participants regardless of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, familial status and/or marital status.  Founded on the basis of dialogues with local theatre artists who wanted a permanent home to practice their craft, its intimate 95-seat theatre provides a facility that meets professional standards where performing artists, educators, and technicians can present their skills.  Because Beowulf Alley engages a talent and volunteer pool that calls Tucson “home” for its productions, the Theatre is committed to helping grow a new generation of Tucson talent with its programs including education for adults and youth, late night theatre to experiment with and gain experience, readers theatre for playwrights’ unpublished works, lunchtime theatre to bring art to the workday and screenings of independent film artists.  And true to its roots, the Theatre maintains ongoing dialogues with the community, including Dialogues with theatergoers after the first Sunday matinee performance of each of its main stage plays, at Readers’ Theatre nights, and other presentations, providing an opportunity for theatergoers to discuss the plays with the director and artists.  Writers who cover the Tucson arts scene say the Theatre provides its audiences with “the best total package”—plays, performances and productions that are high in artistic and technical quality.  Beowulf Alley has received critical acclaim, including two Mac Awards and seven MAC nominations.  The company has presented over 325 performances to Tucson audiences since 2002 and has served hundreds of theatre artists.  The theater also provides performance and rehearsal space for other Tucson theater companies.  For more information, log on to  We thank the National Endowment for the Arts, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the Tucson Pima Arts Council, the Janet S.
