BREAKDOWN

Against the backdrop of an endless, unwinnable war raging halfway across the world, and a polarizing president recklessly stoking the flames of racist backlash at home – a generation of young people rises up to demand change from a corrupt political establishment. It is October, 1969 and unbeknownst to the rest of the world, three 20-something radicals are busy planning the impending revolution from a quiet college town in Upstate New York. But when two strangers appear, disrupting the group’s delicate balance, new dangers and old wounds threaten to tear the collective apart. By the Tony Award-winning writer of Dear Evan Hansen, DAYS OF RAGE is a timely new play about means and ends, ideals and extremes, and the perils of changing the world.
SEEKING:
Jenny (20): Idealistic, well-intentioned, sensitive, and caring, Jenny has turned her back on the comfortable life of upper middle class privilege in which she was raised. She genuinely wants to change the world, but has begun to question just how far she's willing to go to make that happen.

Spence (21): Cerebral, ambitious, and uncompromising, Spence was once a nice boy from the suburbs before transforming himself, more or less convincingly, into a revolutionary.

Hal (23): Sweet, kind, trying his best, a sunny presence, Hal comes from a typical, lower middle class, African-American family. A townie in a university town.

Quinn (20): Fierce, prone to stridency, a true believer, Quinn comes from a working class background. An autodidact, she feels a certain insecurity about her lack of formal education and tries to make up for it with a redoubled zeal for the cause.

Peggy (17): Manipulative, charismatic, accustomed to getting what she wants, thrives on chaos, think Abigail from The Crucible — she is an expert at playing innocent when the situation calls for it.
