in 'Revolution Row'
Revolution Row, a drama about civil rights, will premiere at The Sande Shurin Theatre on the 18 Aug 2005 and play through to the 11 Sep 2005.
Revolution Row is written by Edward Miller and is directed by Aaron Daniel Haber.
In Revolution Row, a fictional tale set ten years into the future in a federal prison, Republican extremists have maintained control of Congress and the Presidency and have enacted most of their agenda; Abortions are now illegal, prayer is taught in the schools and flag-burning is forbidden.
When a ragtag bunch of idealists who have refused to pay their taxes in protest of civil rights meet as inmates, their quest for equality and justice is at stake. Leading the cause is Reginald Mason, a gay man in his 20s who has had enough. The civil rights crusade they pursue while incarcerated is nearly derailed by forces they cannot foresee nor control.
Revolution Row seeks to inspire with itï¿½s scenes of courage in the face of violent opposition, as Reginald and his followers stand up against the brutal prison system and societyï¿½s discrimination.
