No spoilers- tonight’s discussion will deal with the subject matter of the play, not the play itself!
Our current production, Dionysus In Stony Mountain by Steven Ratzlaff asks a raft of questions about our Justice System and what obligation we owe to others. It also asks the audience to question many of their own moral assumptions about criminalization and incarceration.
It’s a political play and a provocative subject that the community can engage with both inside the theatre and on the street. So we’re hosting a discussion, Salon style, down the street from the theatre at the Free Press Café, with the guidance of an expert panel and an outstanding moderator.
