Graphic for Alligator Gospels

In the middle of the desert, two sisters struggle to fix their estranged relationship, two men try to find God, and all four of them discover The Truth during The Alligator Gospels. Written by Matt Pelfrey, Marietta College will perform The Alligator Gospels under the direction of Becca Robinson ’22 at 8:00 p.m., Friday, December 3rd, in the Friederich Theater.

At a remote house near Budaghers, New Mexico, two sisters struggle to come to terms with the violent death of their parents, years earlier. Outside, two men walk into the desert looking for a God who appears in the form of an alligator. All four will be together when the world sheds its skin, and the New Way begins.

The performance is equivalent to a PG-13 movie rating. Ticket holders will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry into the venue. Masks are required and must be worn correctly.

Marietta College students, employees, and immediate families of employees may see the performance for free by showing their Marietta College ID at the box office in the Hermann Fine Arts Center lobby on the day of the performance, or they can purchase tickets in advance. The box office opens an hour before each performance.
