A world where the leaders lie, cheat, steal and murder. A world where Art and Science and Beauty and Reason are no longer valued. A world where survival means selling out, and trying to do the "right thing" means failure as a human being. A familiar place? Yes, of course, it is the fictional, 1940's world of film noir, nothing like our own present world at all, right? Right? Or has noir come true, and we're all living in a world gone wrong?

Returning to The Brick by popular demand after a smash-hit run in The Moral Values Festival, World Gone Wrong is a film noir pastiche-play consisting of dialogue from almost two hundred noirs, as well as quotes from our current U.S. Administration and other pertinent sources, combined into an original spellbinding, semiabstract, dreamlike tale of corruption, betrayal,
and revenge.

Combining a cast of 21 in precision choreography, slides, and an entirely pre-recorded collage soundtrack, World Gone Wrong is a celebration of the ability to stay true to, and fight for, one's own convictions in a land where "moral values" is just a mask that hides greed, hatred, fear, backstabbing, and lies.
