Three women suddenly left work today and have reportedly been transformed due to the influence of a large, unidentified bird. Authorities have asked anyone who sees this suspicious crow-like creature to call 911 immediately. If you see the women, look the other way. Their awakening could be contagious.

What can you expect from this show?

In Dead Roads we invite you into the world of three women on the brink of massive personal and political transformation. Through poetically intertwined monologues, their lives take a sharp u-turn in the scope of one day. Witnessing these three women hurtle towards metamorphosis, we see how their struggle has forced them to live unnaturally, hiding and denying their core desires. It is a story that uses personal journey as an allegory to examine the global economy and the sacrifices we make to confine to that system.

This play asks: In our frenzied search for financial stability and wealth, what do we lose?

Who made this show?
