Written collaboratively by student Nolan Kennedy and director Sven Miller, the play
is a charged experience of American oppression, exploitation and injustice, with an
eye to the Bloomington-Normal community. Cast members spent time at area soup kitchens
to understand the experiences of being in a different social class. In addition to
the student actors, the performance will also feature clients of the homeless shelters,
Home Sweet Home and Safe Harbor in Bloomington, who will give their own accounts of
Drawing from the theatrical styles of Heiner Muller and Pina Bausch, the physical
and atypically blunt performance style sets the production apart as not only questioning
the mechanics of society, but the mechanics of the theatre itself.
