A staged reading of a new play by George Sapio. Lizzie Featherstone, editor of an alumni magazine, prints a first-hand essay from a distinguished student about three months spent in Fredonian-occupied Sylvanian territory. Pro-Fredonian factions in the board of trustees begin to work against her, and she is forced to defend her decision to print and the student’s right to write about what she saw. The issue becomes a legal battle that serves as an allegory for the record of SCOTUS free speech cases in the 20th century. Chances are, you may not know nearly enough about free speech in America.
Tickets available at door on performance nights.
