PROVOCATIVE NEW PLAY

TRIGGER

By Sam Chanse

Directed by Flordelino Lagundino
At IATI Theater
64 E 4th Street

THE HUMAN BRAIN IS HARDWIRED
FOR EXPLOSIVE VIOLENCE.

RAGE HAPPENS.

When Lee recognizes childhood friend Allie in a video of a racist rant that goes viral, Lee's sister, Grace, urges her to reach out. As Lee becomes uncomfortably reacquainted with Allie, a deteriorating domestic situation and sudden crisis explode the world around her. In a time of heightened fear and anger, how can Lee connect with others, and contend with her own rage? A play about this country and this moment, the fury around and within us, and what happens next.
