What does it mean that we have gone into a behavioral retrograde at such an astonishing rate? How is it that what was inappropriate, unthinkable, cruel, ignorant, racist, and sexist….has been made acceptable, even “normal” in such a short period of time?
As we look for ways to exist in this environment, we find support, hope, helping hands, momentary misses followed by unexpected generosities. With music by Beth Custer and sound design by Greg Kuhn, In Civility P. 1: Instability explores the volatile nature of the cultural experiment we are all living through at this crucial moment in history.
One of the most exciting theatrical events in San Francisco Bay Area, the FURY Factory is a national hub for ensemble theater work on the West Coast.
