See RED WEDNESDAY this Spring
as part of the LPAC ROUGH DRAFT FESTIVAL


Against the brutality of time and politics, RED WEDNESDAY seeks to rescue and redefine our civilization's legacy through the lens of a family born into revolution. Inspired by the controversial story of Sadegh Ghotbzadeh, Iran's Foreign Minister during the 1979 hostage crisis, and written by his great-niece, the production unpacks the core issues at play between Iran, US and global interests, paying special attention to those left to clean up the mess when we blow each other up. Confessions of unrest, reformation, decadence, and loss conspire to provide conclusive evidence of the glamour of an era that is dying and the valor of a new age that is emerging. RED WEDNESDAY gives voice to a rising global counterculture, offering a more kaleidoscopic lens through which to view revolution.
