CHICAGO'S HOME FOR RADICAL ART.

Register for Virtual Staged Reading of Underdrown

Underdrown by Derek McPhatter

Directed by Mikael Burke

Virtual Staged Reading - Attendance is free of charge

Saturday, May 1st @ 7pm  

 

Synopsis:  A queer black intellectual searches for a platform to tell his truth, even as environmental catastrophe transforms Chicago and the line between IRL and the virtual world blurs into the surreal.  

 

Setting: Dr Ezekiel Haight's Mobile Home Office, in Chicagoland; first in his South Side coastal condo, and also in the guest house at Jamie's home on the North side. The virtual worlds, particularly Halls of Thunder, a vintage fantasy Massively Multiplayer Role Playing Game augmented reality environment (MMORPG).

 

Time: the near future, during a time of coinciding crises: social unrest at failed racial /class reforms + widening panic at surging water levels due to climate change.
