The world premiere of a passionate and political new work written by four young playwrights, directed by Christian Leavesley (co-founder Uncle Semolina(& friends)). Set and costume ME, lighting Lisa Mibus, Radicals and Misanthropes attacks lies, violence, fear and bullshit head on. No apologies. This production will also feature the 2006 St Martins Performers’ Ensemble—a remarkable group of nineteen emerging young actors.
The result is an episodic play that speaks to our current political climate—one of shifting grounds and single issues—where parties and broad political platforms are a thing of the past. A climate that breeds fear of the other, political racism, selfishness and an inability to deal with our nation’s past with anything less than extremism—extremism of ignorance, extremism of denial.
