The world’s stakes are so terribly high right now. Last week’s attack on the Capitol Building, and by extension our Democracy, was terrifying and revealing. We have so much work to do if we are to defeat white supremacy and the brutality of capitalism.
Change (on seemingly every front) is needed right now. How do we unify in the fight for a better world? How do we achieve consensus and can we afford to wait that long?
Next fall, 10 years after the Occupy Wall Street, Theater in Asylum will produce Andy Boyd’s Occupy Prescott. The play follows five very different activists as they try to formulate their demands and reach consensus in how to achieve a more equitable country. With all that’s happening today, the questions, dilemmas, and dueling priorities in this play are precisely what we need now.
If you are in a position to, please consider supporting our 2021 Season so that we may bring Occupy Prescott, and the rest of our programs, to our community.
Thank you so much.
