"Dead Youth" or "The Leaks"

Creative Writing Program



Wednesday, November 29, 2017 7:30PM
Philbin Studio Theatre


In Notre Dame Professor Joyelle McSweeney's award-winning, eco-farcical rewiring of The Tempest, Julian Assange pilots a hijacked containership full of Dead Youth towards Magnetic Island, planning to revive them/upload them onto the Internet; not one but two rival hijackers aims to thwart this mission, while presiding deity Henrietta Lacks looks on with grave displeasure.

This outrageous farce poses serious questions: can Justice survive the Anthropocene? Can Justice survive on a planet riven with racial, gendered, economic, environmental, colonialist, and ableist inequalities? Chicago's Runaways Lab Theater reprise their hilarious and haunting production of this timely work.
