URINETOWN

Genre: Musical
Music & Lyrics by Mark Holmann, book and lyrics by Gret Gotis, directed by Tom Wojtunki

URINETOWN is a brilliantly funny and engaging satire of musical theatre traditions with a Brechtian edge. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom.

This production is set in the 1970s.
