WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This epic new play focuses on the seismic, cultural shift that occurred in our nation in 1969, leaving us forever changed. Follow real historic characters Mary Jo Kopechne (of that infamously mysterious Chappaquiddick ride), William J. Murray (son of atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair and future advisor to George W. Bush), and Junior (son of Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins) as they traverse through that frenetically disturbing year. Through incisive, hallucinogenic lenses, we revisit the milestones of the time: incipient sexual freedom impinging on traditional ideals; mushrooming atheism sparring with the newfound vigor of the right; relinquishing the Kennedy complex while nurturing deity-like celebrity; and savoring the rapture of television despite its capitalistic trappings…all this, set against the event meant to unify our world - the moon landing!
