ISMISM!

Theatre / Gymnasium

Two middle-class suburban adults are in a park preparing for a big protest. One is a white woman and the other a black man. Who they are as man and woman and black and white, respectively, along with a myriad of other obstacles, make their protest movement useless. They are too stuck trying to figure out who is to lead or who is the more marginalized, where they are being directed to, why they are even there, and ultimately what their cause is.
