An Immersive Descent into the Divided American Soul
A play written by Mark Perry, Department of Dramatic Art
November 13th and 14th @ 7:30pm
The setting is a massive, indoor commercial and entertainment complex attached to a diversion dam along the Potomac River. The time is the near future, not quite a full generation from now. American life is quite different after the Agitation, but recognizable--the way a person who has been through a serious, life-altering accident is recognizable.
Caroline and David are strangers destined to meet tonight at Masters Falls, a diabolical place they both despise. Morningstar, the all-seeing impresario figure who lords over Masters Falls, seems deeply invested in their actions, as if his survival depends on them. After a harrowing night, the two leave together determined to find the loved one they share in common. Masters Falls burns behind them. Or does it? There’s really no way to know.
