Bushwick Starr Propeller Project to Present PLUM DE FORCE, 9/5-8
The Bushwick Starr Propeller Project presents Plum de Force, written and directed by Kristine Haruna Lee, from September 5-8, Thursday-Sunday at 8pm.
Johnny is a farmer who can talk to plums. He's also in love with one. When the illicit affair becomes a public scandal, the adulterous plum and her sisters receive their grim sentence- plucked and sent to an ultra-chic supermarket, which, from their perspective, is a Berlin Night Club full of lights, music, plastics, pesticides, and not to mention, some dangerous looking fruit. A psychedelic trip offered by one dubious apple sends the plums to a circus in Calcutta (of all places), where bread and butter sing, a bag of sugar sweet talks, and a courtroom waits to cast their finAl Verdict. Plum de Force is Kristine Haruna Lee's newest play about the life cycle of plums who are also witches, contemplating the modern consciousness of food.
