Local repertory theater group North County Players is bringing historical stage thriller Passage Into Fear to the San Marcos Community Center’s Hearth Theater this April. The play, set in 1917 during the end of World War I, is being presented in conjunction with a worldwide series of 100-year observances of the war. Passage Into Fear is set aboard a transcontinental passenger train and features Miss Lillian Merriweather, who disappears after hinting at an international plot, an eight-year-old war orphan, a member of Parliament, a young Swiss doctor with an immense secret, and a ruthless German countess. Performances will begin at 7 p.m. on April 10 and 11 with a 2 p.m. matinee on April 12. All proceeds will benefit local veterans and nonprofit organizations, and attendees will receive double their ticket price in gifts and offers from event sponsors.
