"Shipwreck: A History Play About 2017"

Arts & TheaterShipwreck: A History Play About 2017

A group of well-meaning liberals gathers at a farmhouse in upstate NY for a relaxing weekend. A son adopted from Kenya struggles to feel connected to his new family and country. And the 45th US President sends a history-altering dinner invitation. There is plenty of blame to spare as snow piles high, mountains crumble, and the wounds of the 2016 election break open. The mythology of America is re-written in real time as we are forced to grapple with the legend of a frightening New York man made from gold. Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play) returns to Woolly with a sinister and sensational new play.
