New Play A Modest Proposal Takes a Bite Out of American Incompetence at Minnesota Fringe
Box Wine Theatre Presents A Modest Proposal, a world premiere satire by Adam Sharp inspired by the Jonathan Swift essay of the same name.
In 1729 Ireland, the O'Really family has fallen upon hard times. They must take out loan after loan in order to make ends meet as their family continues to grow. Unable to pay off their debt, all seems bleak until word spreads of an enlightening new essay by Jonathan Swift which humbly suggests that when parents can no longer be the bread winners, the children can literally become the bread. Join Box Wine Theatre for a dark and hilarious romp when people just don't understand satire.
The show is Written by Adam Sharp and Directed by Bethany Simmons
Featuring Tom Goerger, Matthew Kelly, Jay Kistler, Jason Kruger, Dawn Krosnowski, Brianna Regan, Michael Renner, Alexander Stene, Cody Stewart, Glen Stone, and Amanda Kay Thomm
