    Theater: Soho Repertory / 46 Walker Street, New York, NY, 10013

    Synopsis: 

    In the darkest hour of the night, surrender your heart to call the light.

    Two halves of a soul hunt through a hall of records.
    A librarian breaks the seal of a mysterious archive.
    A teacher and her class prepare the pageant to end all pageants.

    Duat conjures a spell of disintegration, transformation and regeneration through an incandescent performance in three parts. A little bit vaudeville, a little bit rock and soul.

    In ‘Duat,’ the Here and Now and the Hereafter

    Ben Brantley

    October 25, 2016: Eternity is downright cozy in “Duat,” Daniel Alexander Jones’s hearts-and-flowers-themed exploration of life and what lies beyond. This buoyantly didactic show, a Soho Rep production at the Connelly Theater, takes gentle pains to remind us that our next breath could well be our last. Not that this is necessarily a cause for lamentation. As one character, a sort of cosmic librarian, puts it, she didn’t dress for a funeral. (No, she’s wearing silver lamé.) She offers a benediction: “I pray for you that the coming darkness is a womb, not a tomb.”
