1984 meets NSA in a paranoid state. A recurring theme through history of the establishment mentally torturing the innocent.

We both liked it a lot, but the plot was SO much like similar plays (esp. The Crucible) that we weren't sure what this one added to that line of inquiry. Very well performed and staged - compelling and visceral.

Quotes & Highlights

“It’s a script which lays out her vividly imagined plot so subtly that you don’t notice King is trying to make you think something until you’ve already thought it." —The Telegraph
“The tension will send you running home to shower off the fear and sweat; but if this does not give your brain and soul a workout, you haven’t been paying attention. See this work: it is gorgeous.”  —John Rudoff, Oregon Music News
“ … its gut punch is that it harnesses enormous themes, losing none of their power, and brings them to an ordinary level in a powerful illustration of what could happen to everyday people when a desperate world goes spinning out of joint.”  —Carol Wells, The Oregonian
“Dámaso Rodriguez’s taut direction plays up the sense of foreboding, with an ominous soundscape and disquieting lighting design … King strikes a balance of specificity and mystery that keeps the audience engaged.” —Rebecca Jacobson, Willamette Week
