_Dead Pile

_Written by Laura Jacqmin

Directed by Megan Shuchman

Jeremy is a wannabe investigator: someone who goes undercover at factory farms to film the often-horrific abuses committed within. But when he’s sent to do an exposé on a dairy farm in southern Indiana, he runs up against some difficult questions about his chosen line of work. A play that forces us to look at what we eat – and what we’re willing to sacrifice.
