    The Walk Across America for Mother Earth

    THE WALK ACROSS AMERICA FOR MOTHER EARTH By Taylor Mac, Music by Ellen Maddow, Directed by Christopher Annas-Lee

    Political activism meets bedazzled drag show in this story about two young friends who flee their suburban upbringing in "Real America" to join a ragtag group of activists on a protest march from D.C. to Nevada. On the road, the group attempts to establish a nomadic utopia, but the marchers continually find themselves divided by cancer, unrequited affections, indecision, and a secret hunger for power. Whimsically blending commedia dell'arte influences with song and dance, The Walk Across America for Mother Earth explores how the idea of community sometimes fails to unite us, and sometimes brings us together in the most unexpected ways.

    "... At its deepest level "The Walk Across America for Mother Earth" celebrates the people who search for meaning in life by striving for social change, even if their motives are mixed and success remains stubbornly elusive. As Mr. Mac himself observes in this smart, funny and ultimately quite moving play, for idealists - and for artists - failure and success can look an awful lot alike." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
