Snowlion Repertory Theatre Presents MORAL AND POLITICAL LESSONS ON WYOMING, 11/14-23

Snowlion Repertory Theatre's fall production is utterly unique - searingly funny, disturbingly relevant, a show that turns political satire on its head as it celebrates the unquenchable spirit of theater. In Moral & Political Lessons on 'Wyoming,' playwright Vincent Sessa reveals a world in which repression and the desire for freedom are locked in a mortal battle for the souls of three young students, November 14-23 at Portland Stage Studio Theater.

In a society where theatrical plays have been stamped out, students read excerpts from the contraband play Wyoming at a "Commitment Talk" run by a panel of community leaders who celebrate the death of theater. As scenes from Wyoming are enacted, the lecture transforms into an actual theatrical event as the young readers find themselves swept away by the power of the dramatic experience created by the material they are reading. Imaginations soar, long-repressed emotions are reawakened, and the spirit of theater bursts forth, igniting a fierce battle over the very soul of free expression.
