This play offers an intimate portrait of a young woman and her refusal to sacrifice her principles when ordered to meet questionable but legal demands of a state in crisis.
The conflict between two points of view regarding our rights and responsibilities as citizens takes on a contemporary look, as we navigate a world where issues of gender, race, violence and trauma thread through a political discussion regarding natural law, civil disobedience, and the importance and risks of public dissent.
RUNNING TIME: 1 hour 40 minutes including one 10 minute intermission.
All performance times are in Eastern Standard Time.
The Sunday, April 11 performance will be pre-recorded, not live streamed.
