PROVOCATIVE NEW PLAY
February/March 2018

Trigger

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

When a childhood friend’s racist rant goes viral, Lee wrestles with the rage inside herself and in others. On top of that, she has to deal with a deteriorating domestic situation and a sudden xenophobic attack on a family member. What can she do? Lee seeks refuge in studies of ignorance and the science of emotions. As ancient goddesses and not-so-ancient house flies hover over her lecture notes, she comes to learn what little she really knows. In this topical and mythic dramedy, Trigger asks how we can connect people in a time of heightened fear and anger.
