Say It!

When I first heard the name of the play, Say You Love Satan, it conjured up a memory. I once read a true crime book about a Long Island teenage metalhead who called himself "The Acid King" and dabbled in Satanism. In 1984, he stabbed a friend 36 times while taunting him with, "Say you love Satan." Then I wondered how anyone could ever adapt this into a play. Well, they haven't. UNT's Summer Theatre production, Say You Love Satan, is something completely different. It's a poignant black comedy about two lovers, one of whom just happens to be the son of the devil. The play is an exploration of young love and the hell that goes along with it. Feed the flames at 8p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the University Theatre in the UNT Radio, Television, Film and Performing Arts Building, Welch St. at Chestnut St. in Denton. Call 940-565-2428 for ticket info.
Fri., Aug. 8, 8 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 9, 8 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 10, 2:30 p.m., 2008
