Streaming July 15 - 18, 2021

Acclaimed playwright-and-director duo Ike Holter and Lili-Anne Brown (Lottery Day) rejoin forces for the Chicago premiere of his newest work.

If there’s one thing Americans can agree on, it’s that 2020 was not the best way to begin a new decade. With guts and humor, punctuated with story and song, Ike Holter asks who we are in a world on the brink of explosion in this “sharp and satisfyingly foul-mouthed” (The New York Times) rallying cry for our times.

All performance times listed are in Central Daylight Time (CDT).
