In the world premiere of Caridad Svich’s Magnificent Waste, Factory 449 explores America’s appetite for excess and presents an unsettling portrait of its own undoing; a glittering but brutal exploration of modern society’s superficiality and the objectification of the human body.

About the Ticket Supplier: Factory 449

Formed in April of 2009, Factory 449: a theatre collective has approached its inaugural season with a working mission-in-development:
