PERVERSION: AN ALLEGORY OF MODERN AMERICA

Genre: Drama
Written and Directed by Judson Blake

Into a quiet urban home come two strangers on a sinister mission they don’t disclose.  They frighten some, entertain others, and refuse to leave.  As the home invasion worsens, their hosts reveal some twists of their own.  In a dark and surreal evening of fantasy, farce and betrayal, you should be forewarned: It’s about something real.  A scathing political satire of the America we lived through and where we still live today.

From playwright Judson Blake
“I chose to write an allegory because I believe naturalistic theater is inadequate to approach the impersonal crimes of our age.  Traditionally the crime of murder takes dramatic moment from some relationship between the killer and the victim.  But what if there is no relationship?  What if the victims are faceless and the killer protected by lies thoughtlessly believed?  And what if this lack of vision makes murder all the more tolerable to our society?  It is my belief that only drama of a different kind can hold a picture up to the world of crimes the world has accepted and even praised

The cast of eight includes Harry Bainbridge, Daniel Cuff, Tony Del Bono, Dana Jesberger, Irina Kaplan, Robert Lewis, Andy Nordin and Jenn Susi.
