Occupy Prescott - a new play by Andy Boyd

Occupy Prescott - a reading of a new play by Andy Boyd, directed by Jenny Strickland
This play begins in the fall of 2011, when a libertarian rancher, an anarchist punk, an aging hippie, a radical priest, and a single mother gather in Courthouse Square in Prescott, Arizona determined to fix America. They all agree that the one percent is too powerful, and the rest of us are getting screwed. When they try to get more specific than that, though, they find themselves disagreeing about nearly everything. Over the next several weeks, unlikely alliances and relationships form among the Occupiers, and new possibilities emerge even as tensions rise. Occupy Prescott is a play about the beauty and fragility of progressive coalitions, why they fail, and why they matter.
