Man with a gun wants to be loved. Get talking.
from The Burying Beetles (Cincinnati, OH)
Primary Lineup –Play (Comedy, Political Themes, Satire)
A rebel leader is captured by an enemy officer who’s ignorant of the country he’s invaded. Flattering him into believing he’s a brilliant commander with God on his side, the rebel spins half-truths into lies and very nearly saves his country – until the people he’s trying to save start falling out of helicopters.
The Burying Beetles first swarmed together in 2011 to wage theatrical warfare against Neoliberal oligarchic imperialism. Hammering with their tiny theater-fists against Empire in all its stupidity, this fluctuating mob of academics and theater geeks has erupted into six of the last seven Fringes to rip open the soft orange underbelly of the corporate state, spit satire-venom into the gaping wounds and devour the beast from within. Let our absurdo-Brechtian lies mixed-metaphorically metastatize into a new Truth: the people will rule.
