What are we to make of petitions from seven states to secede?  They bespeak a bristling hostility to the federal government and a dislike bordering on detestation of some Americans for other Americans, as deep as it was in 1861 … “Can we all just get along?” Well, if we can’t, we can at least dwell apart. After all, it’s a big country. Pat Buchanan

Follow the lives of twenty-one citizens as they navigate the impact of ‘Long Division’ on their country. Secessionville is an epic play intergrating live performance, video projection and music.

Suitable for those aged 16 and over. 
This performance contains strong language, violence and mild nudity.
