Following a recently announced extension, the show will now run through June 27.

Directed by John Collins, The Sound and the Fury is a staging of the first section of the "Benjy Chapter" of William Faulkner's seminal novel of the same name. The show is billed as a theatrical representation of Faulkner's complex language. "In usual ERS style, humor, pathos, and high-energy choreography illuminate this Southern Gothic tale. ERS takes on Faulkner’s daring experimentation with consciousness, perception, memory and language – and honors the author’s words to the letter," state press notes.

The production features split-screen staging, video-projected text and an original sound score. It features scenic design by David Zinn, costume design by Colleen Werthmann and additional costumes by Jacob A. Climer, lighting design by Mark Barton and sound design by Matt Tierney.

The ensemble cast includes Daphne Gaines, Rosie Goldensohn, Mike Iveson, Vin Knight, Aaron Landsman, Randolph Curtis Rand, Greig Sargeant, Kaneza Schaal, Pete Simpson, Susie Sokol, Lucy Taylor, Tory Vazquez and Ben Williams.
