Description

An unexpected act of violence lands Max in a residency clinic for emotionally disturbed teens. Was his explosive outburst the symptom of a mental disorder or a passionate act of love? Featuring young actors from A.C.T.‘s acclaimed Master of Fine Arts Program and Young Conservatory, Riot weaves Max’s relationships with his fellow patients, his doctor, and his nurses into a moving portrait of the deep human need for connection. Celebrated Irish playwright Ursula Rani Sarma’s hard-hitting play is the newest commission from A.C.T.’s international partnership with Britain’s Theatre Royal Bath.
