A world where the leaders lie, cheat, steal and murder. A world where Art and Science and Beauty and Reason are no longer valued. A world where survival means selling out, and trying to do the "right thing" means failure as a human being. A familiar place? Yes, of course, it is the fictional, 1940's world of film noir, nothing like our own present world at all, right? Right? Or has noir come true, and we're all living in a world gone wrong?
Combining a cast of 21 in precision choreography with slides and an entirely pre-recorded collage soundtrack, Necropolis #1 & 2: World Gone Wrong/Worth Gun Willed is a celebration of the ability to stay true to, and fight for, one's own convictions in a land where "moral values" is just a mask that hides greed, hatred, fear, backstabbing, and lies. World Gone Wrong is a film noir pastiche-play consisting of dialogue from over 150 noirs, as well as quotes from our current U.S. Administration and other pertinent sources, combined into an original spellbinding, semiabstract, dreamlike tale of corruption, betrayal, and revenge.
