This King's County or (the Unwritten Ballad of April & Barker)
By Benjamin Sulzberger
Directed by Clara Reynen

In This King’s Country or (The Unwritten Ballad of April and Barker), the federal government of the United States of America has collapsed, but that doesn’t stop local tyrants that fill the void left in its wake from using the same populist tactics as their predecessors. In one oppressed town on the frontier of the apocalypse, April and Barker take things into their own hands when they launch an underground newspaper to combat the lies of their glorious leader. In doing so, they’re thrust into a whole new world of spies, violence, revolution, and the “official” story.

This production contains adult language, scenes of violence and sexual assault, and loud noises.

Tickets for Workshops are free of charge; however, you must obtain a ticket at the door and seating is limited.
