About this show

Plasticene presents The Palmer Raids: A Theatrical Construction, an original piece of experimental physical theater with a new sonic and verbal edge. The show departs from a chain of historical events that shook and fundamentally changed the American animus. Known for creating complexity from simplicity, Plasticene's four company members interact with microphone lines, 16 folding chairs, 3 folding tables and an overhead projector to create a thrilling and politically charged retelling and reconstructing of the Palmer Raids of 1919 & 1920. Created and performed by Mark Comiskey, Dominic Conti, Sharon Gopfert and Tere Parkes. Directed by Dexter Bullard.
