THE HIGH CAPTAIN
A singularly original and intoxicating play about democracy.
A group of shipwrecked petroleum barge workers attempts to set up a government on their new island home. This task is complicated by the fact that they have also been getting high on the barge's cargo. Soon, sides are taken and an election is held to determine the new «captain» of the island. Holding a mirror our own surreal political times, The High Captain asks the question: is our current system any more functional than one whose leaders are high on gas fumes?
