Award-winning theatre companies Rescue Agreement and CAP21 bring you If [or When] the Roof Falls In, a new intellectual spectacle. By merging traditional plot with innovative technology, Rescue Agreement’s works are equally invigorating mentally and visually.
If [or When] the Roof Falls In is a theatrical experience set in The Library, a space where you can reference any memory in human history. Surrounded by images of the past and possible futures, Ethan and Charlotte debate the value of memory; Charlotte clings desperately to the past, and Ethan can’t wait to let his go. Helped by a mischievous janitor and a whimsical intern, they must decide whether to save or destroy The Library, and with it, the institution of memory. There are no easy answers here. What do you want to forget? What do you need to remember?
The library looks forward to welcoming you.
