Description

Shelton Theater, in collaboration with Manjomang Productions, presents the debut of Indigo Don’t Vote, a dark comedy directed by Matt Shelton.

Indigo Don’t Vote

By Andrew Ward and Gabriel Goldstein

Directed by Matthew Shelton

Review from SF Weekly:

“The Kafka-esque scenario of Indigo Don’t Vote, a dark staged comedy written by Andrew Ward and Gabriel Goldstein, is eerily similar to Steven Spielberg’s film The Terminal: Each work includes a Third World country that has ceased to exist, an airplane, and an oft-repeated catchword that sums up the quirky circumstances — The Terminal’s ‘unacceptable’ to Indigo’s ‘discontinued.’ The main characters in the two stories, however, react to the vanished countries in wholly different ways. One falls in love with Catherine Zeta-Jones and eats gift-shop crackers; the other, an inert loafer who ‘lacks the passion to pursue anything,’ is finally motivated to warn against a world that seems to be disappearing. He turns to friends, a senator, a psychiatrist, the media, and anarchists for help with the sticky problem of ‘non-ness’ — and receives a predictable zilch. Written in 2002 against the backdrop of troops massing in Iraq, the play presents a new modern malaise: that of disappearing through the information gap.”
