Parliament Square by James Fritz

Director Georgia Green

Designer Anna Joseph

Lighting Designer Sander Saedberg

Kat wakes, knowing she has to do something so terrible and so shocking that it will change everything: her life, the future, the entire country.  James Fritz’s play is a confrontation between voices of conscience and rage, of desperation and compassion.  Kat’s story makes us face the urgent questions of our age: what is effective protest?  Does protest have to be direct and violent to bring about change?  Parliament Square is a highly theatrical exploration of the interior world of political obsession and its impact on the most intimate and distant relationships.

A performance based on the respected social history work by Studs Terkel, arguably one of the most powerful, original, and human writers of the 20th century. It is an exploration of the meaning of work for different people under different circumstances and how our work shapes who we are. It gives a spotlight to those who are often overlooked in the workforce and explores the idea that work can be difficult but still provides meaning for workers.  The musical, originally conceived and written by Stephen Schwartz, has since been updated and includes additional material from Lin-Manuel Miranda.
