Dog² Productions presents the world premiere of Persistent Vegetative State, by Robert C. Barker. Dylan Russell directs. Three women, a political campaign, inability to act, playing the victim, moving forward to action -- these elements spark and ignite as innovative Bay Area theatre company Dog² Productions introduces this dark political comedy that compares personal apathy and childhood trauma to political apathy and national historical trauma. Set in Los Angeles and New Hampshire primary in 2008, where a woman is running for the democratic nomination and winning. Sophie, Kat and Jade wonder if they're part of the problem, part of the solution, or if any of it matters in a world 95% comprised of what physicists have termed dark energy.
