The collaborative effort of “There’s a Light on Yonder Mountain” takes its cast on a hero’s journey.
BY SCOTT STIFFLER | THERE’S A LIGHT ON YONDER MOUNTAIN
Written by Stacy Davidowitz, Lindsay Joy Murphy, David H. Rosen and David L. Williams in person — as well as by way of Skype, text messages, phone calls and emails — the characters, themes and narrative fragments that ultimately became “There’s a Light on Yonder Mountain” began to percolate when the project’s literary director, Kate MacCluggage, gave the writers exploratory assignments based on the tried and true mythology popularized by Joseph Campbell’s influential exploration of the “hero’s journey” storytelling arc. The result: an unlikely group of misfits embark on a mysterious mission to change the world (and find out what all the luminescent fuss is about at the top of that far-away mound).
Through June 8, Thurs-Sat., at 8pm. At UNDER St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place, btw. 1st Ave. & Ave. A). For tickets ($18, $15 for students/seniors), call 212-868-4444 or visit horsetrade.info.

Classic patrol cars come to Front St., on June 8.
Vintage Police car show
You provide the loud siren noise, and they’ll provide the vehicles. The New York City Police Museum may still be closed for post-Sandy repairs, but its annual Vintage Police Car Show will go on. Join them for a fun-filled day, as you view a spectacular collection of classic patrol vehicles — and keep checking their website (nycpm.org) for updates on special events and exhibitions, sponsored in partnership with cultural institutions around the city. The Car Show is a free event. Sat., June 8, from 10am-4pm. On Front St., btw. Maiden Lane and John St.
