The world premiere of a new play by Geoffrey Simon Brown
Directed by Michelle Crimmins & Geoffrey Simon Brown
Lord of the Flies meets The Breakfast Club in a post-climate-crisis world. It’s a high school graduation. The keeners are setting up the party, the radicals are committing small acts of vandalism to drive down property value, the burnouts are just trying to have a good time. When the power goes out, locking everyone inside, a group of teenagers must figure out on their own how to escape, how to make change in a world that has abandoned them, and whether to burn it all to the ground.
Featuring a live band, fire, and snack-size chips, Progress asks: What are we leaving behind to be inherited? And how do we change the world?
