The year is 2465 in a small walled Massachusetts citadel where 435 survivors are all members of Congress with one woman representing the Supreme Court. It’s snowing, Barbarians are encroaching and all members must vote to determine diplomacy or a preemptive strike in order to survive. Uncertainty prevails in a water fragile environment. Through bright energized dialogue, irony, wit and suspense, Pelsue creates a landscape that challenges sensibilities and the extremes of political commentary.
Showtimes are 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on both days.
The student-directed play is produced by the collaborative Acting and Directing, Design and Technology programs of SCC Theatre Arts and by special arrangement with Rachel Viola, United Talent Agency.
The all-student cast is directed by SSFT student Adam Cadena.
