HIST 123 is pleased to announce the world premiere production of Alexandra Panzer, Tara Schuster, and Alice Winslows I
It is the night of a secret recruiting session for a new, fresh-to-death revolutionary movement, led by three young women who are overwhelmed by their early 20s, swept up in the zeal of the Arab Spring, and taken by the boho chic ways of Occupy Wall Street. For them, globalization is too confusing, localism too provincial, and jeggings are too tight. Their goal: to overthrow the current world order. Their dilemma: who are their enemies, how will they overthrow them, and when exactly did they set their terror meeting, 1:30pm on Tuesday or Thursday?
As they explain the movement and attempt to recruit followers, revolution never looked this good, or went this badly.
The production stars Jessie Renee Hopkins, Alexandra Panzer, Tara Schuster, Alice Winslow, and Chris Lowell* (The Help, Up in the Air, Private Practice, Veronica Mars).
